Impressionism is one of the most popular movements in art history. A group of artists including Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Édouard Manet, Paul Cézanne, and Edgar Degas gathered in Paris in the second half of the nineteenth century and created what were to become some of the world’s best-loved and most influential paintings.
This book explores a full range of Impressionist painting by looking closely at thirty-five key works. They are gathered together thematically, concluding with a chapter on the influence of Impressionism on the next generation of artists.
