A breathtaking and superbly designed volume on the influential from the Realist to Art Nouveau art movements. It is magnificently illustrated, with fascinating analysis from an expert. It is a beautiful gift-book. Trace the roots of modern art, beginning with Realist paintings such as Courbet's "The Stonebreakers" and Millet's "The Gleaners" - works that shocked mid - 19th-century Paris with their unblinking depiction of the lives of the poor. Realism was followed in rapid succession by Naturalism, the Pre-Raphaelites, Impressionism, Neo-Impressionism, Aestheticism, Symbolism and Art Nouveau that featured changing styles in art that reflected the enormous changes taking place in the wider world. "From Realism to Art Nouveau" beautifully captures this turbulent era with an incisive text and breathtaking reproductions of works by Manet, Rossetti, Sargent, Monet, Seurat, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Rodin, Klimt and others.
