One of the art world’s most recognizable 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

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.
