Synopsis

Luscious dabs of color and light. This title deals with art history's most delightful movement. Impressionism continues to be one of the most fascinating movements in the history of modern art. It is also the most popular with the general public. Proof of this has been provided in recent years by blockbuster exhibitions of the works of Degas, Gauguin, van Gogh, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Monet, and by record sums realized from the sale of Impressionist paintings. Despite its popularity and a whole host of publications - the majority of them about the most famous names - many areas of Impressionism are still under-researched. Many "second rank" Impressionists have remained unknown or have sunk into oblivion. This monograph fills the gap, as it explores French Impressionism alongside related art movements that flourished simultaneously in the rest of Europe and North America. Part 1 deals with Impressionism in France, including Post- and Neo-Impressionism. As well as discussing the most renowned artists, its aim is to introduce others who are still little-known today.

Among them are the long underrated Gustave Caillebotte, represented by 17 paintings, and artists such as Frederic Bazille, Marie Bracquemond, Henri-Edmond Cross, Jean-Louis Forain, Eva Gonzales, Armand Guillaumin, Albert Lebourg, Stanislas Lepine, Maximilien Luce, Berthe Morisot, Lucien Pissarro, Jean-Francois Raffaelli, Henri Rouart, and Victor Vignon. The eight chapters of part 2 focus on paintings inspired by French Impressionism and produced in parallel in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Scandinavia, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, Italy, Spain, Great Britain, the USA and Canada. Rarely did painters in these countries slavishly copy the ideas emerging from France. Instead, most non-French artists found astonishingly original ways of translating them into the artistc language of their native lands.
