Overview
This dazzling selection of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings features lavish reproductions, lively commentary, and a beautiful slipcase that will delight art lovers. The National Gallery of Art in Washington possesses nearly 400 French impressionist and post-impressionist paintings--one of the finest collections of its kind in the world. This book celebrates that collection with 50 of the Gallery's best-known works, which represent a generous cross section of impressionist and postimpressionist art at its most breathtaking. Reproduced with stunning quality, the full- and double-page illustrations allow readers to savor Van Gogh's vibrant palette, the lushness of Monet's gardens, the texture of C zanne's still lifes, and the delicate beauty of Renoir's women. Works by Gauguin, Seurat, Bazille, and Toulouse-Lautrec display the wide range of styles encompassed by the impressionist and post-impressionist periods. Each masterpiece is accompanied by a brief and informative text, while an essay recounts the challenges and excitement of forming a storied collection. The next best thing to viewing such marvelous art in person, this book offers pleasure on every page.
