One of the art world's most recognisable and popular styles, Impressionism is also one of the most complex. In this sumptuous overview Norbert Wolf lends his attention to all aspects of Impressionism: its historical precursors, contemporary rivals and the movements it inspired. Over 200 large format reproductions of entire works and highlighted details introduce readers to the Impressionists' aesthetics and techniques. Wolf draws insightful parallels between these paintings and other contemporary works of music, photography, and literature. Tracing the movement's expansion from France to the rest of Europe and North America, this volume shines a spotlight on the main protagonists not only highlighting the French pioneers--Claude Monet, Gustave Caillebotte, Edouard Manet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, and others--but also Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, William Merritt Chase, and James McNeill Whistler, to name a few. As luxurious as it is authoritative, this wide-ranging investigation of a momentous period in art history reveals works and ideas that will surprise even the most seasoned aficionado.

MEDIA REVIEWS

-[Thomas] Wolf, German art historian and author (Art Deco), has created another splendidly illustrated tome on an iconic art movement. . . . Wolf explores style, context, themes, the use of color and light, and the expansion of the movement beyond French borders. . . . Large color prints appear on nearly every page. In fact, the dust jacket is so magnificent, one might think a Monet painting was cut from the frame and wrapped around the book. Over 215 illustrations represent impressionist artists from Bazille to Whistler.- --Library Journal
