Impressionism (Hardback)Norbert Wolf (author)
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
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.
Charting the movement’s expansion from France to the rest
of Europe and North America, this volume shines a spotlight
on the main protagonists who were key in the development
of Impressionism. It highlights not only the French pioneers—
Claude Monet, Gustave Caillebotte, Édouard 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.
Authoritative and illuminating, this wide-ranging exploration of
Impressionism’s astounding impact on art history will surprise
even the most seasoned aficionado.
