Paris earned the enduring nickname 'la ville lumiere' during the second half of the nineteenth century, when gas lamps gradually began to light up the city's dark medieval streets. Authors, composers, and especially visual artists thrived in this dazzling milieu. Approximately one hundred prints, drawings, photographs, and paintings offer an unforgettable tour of the cultural capital of the nineteenth century - the city in which Impressionism was born. Readers are transported to Paris via views of the city, from panoramas to picturesque details, by Pierre Bonnard, Charles Marville, Jean-Francois RaffaA"lli, and Edouard Vuillard. Works by Honore Daumier and Edouard Manet convey key historical events and underscore the newfound power of the press. Prints and drawings by Mary Cassatt, Paul Gauguin, and Camille Pissarro provide an expanded view of the Impressionist movement beyond the medium of painting, while Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and James Tissot contribute colourful images of the theatre, the circus, and other forms of popular entertainment. The book concludes with a selection of vibrant turn-of-the-century posters by Jules Cheret, Alphonse Mucha, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and many more.
