This comprehensive illustrated book tells the story of these revolutionary painters and the dramatic times that shaped their vision. The first section, A History of Impressionism, examines the artistic trends which led away from the classical schools of painting and the French landscape tradition in the early part of the nineteenth century. What follows is The Life and Works, which considers the most important individuals in the history of Impressionism, including masters such as Manet, Degas, Monet, Renoir and Sisley. The third and final section, The Legacy of Impressionism, illustrates the startling impact the Impressionists made on a younger generation such as Gauguin, Seurat and Van Gogh. This all combines to become an authoritative and artistic discourse on the fascinating subject of Impressionism.
