One of the great innovations of the Impressionists was their radical use of colour: their application of strokes of complementary or contrasting hues captured the shifting effects of light and foregrounded the nature of vision. Using colour as the lens through which to magnify the movement’s intricacies, this catalogue sweeps us from Manet’s rich blacks, through green and blue landscapes of Monet and Cézanne, to the sensuous pinks of Renoir. Along this journey, scientific discoveries and emerging definitions of modernity are explored, illuminating the profound innovations of the Impressionists and the shifting preconceptions of their art.

A wonderful guide to the most popular movement in the history of art: Impressionism. Monet was the leader of the impressionists, and is one of the best known and possibly the best loved of all painters. But he is not the only artist featured in this book, there is more space devoted to (and more art by) his contemporaries, forebears and followers than in many monographs devoted to them as individuals. Here you will find Manet, the father of impressionism, and Cezanne, who benefited most from it's influence and effect. There is also ample space devoted to Renoir, Sisley, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Seurat, Cassatt, and many more. The book is divided into three sections: the first features an overview of the movement, describing its primary influence and identifying the classic characteristics, the second focuses on the masters, primarily the genius of Monet, but also Cezanne, Degas, Renoir and Van Gogh. The third and largest section showcases the movements art and is organized into thematic chapters, ranging from seasons through gardens to nudes. Every painting is beautifully reproduced, and great care will be taken with the printing, probably using a fifth color to ensure the highest possible quality of reproduction to best serve the subtle palettes of this wonderful group of artists.

A comprehensive, accessible, and richly illustrated guide to impressionism—the perennially popular artistic movement that led to the radical renewal of Western art. Monet, Renoir, Degas, Rodin, Cezanne, Van Gogh, and the other Impressionist artists burst onto the art scene in the second half of the nineteenth century, creating shock waves with their rebellious rejection of the academy’s strict rules dictating subject matter, style, and even color. Their art, labeled impressionism, coincided with the Industrial Revolution, when the world was suddenly jettisoned into modernity. The young artists who gave rise to the movement confronted public disdain and oppression in Europe, but were applauded overseas for their radically contemporary aesthetic. This complete and accessible guide renews and refreshes conventional views on impressionism by placing this seminal moment in art in its historical context. Emblematic masterpieces are examined with a focus on each detail, allowing a deeper understanding and appreciation of the artworks. Biographies of all the major artists of the movement provide insight about their life and significant works, and period photographs illustrate this incredibly rich and exciting time in art history. Organized thematically, the guide includes chapters on photography, fashion, female impressionists, exhibitions, galleries and dealers, writers, the movement’s influence on later artists, and recurrent impressionist themes including leisure activities, the garden, the city, and industry. Replete with illustrations and numerous firsthand accounts and quotations, this book recounts a story of emancipation.
