Item description for Masters of Impressionism by Andreas Bluhm...
For lovers of the late-nineteenth century art movement that broke all conventions of academic painting by privileging color over line, encouraging work en plein air and depicting realistic subjects from modern life, this substantial new collection is a must-have. Featuring work by Cezanne, Manet, Monet, Morisot, Renoir, Sisley, Signac, Seurat and Van Gogh, it is culled from the collection of the Wallraf-Richartz Museum & Corboud Collection in Cologne, Germany--called "Wallraf" for short. Founded in 1861 and housed in a beautiful building designed by Oswald Mathias Ungers, Wallraf is Cologne's oldest museum and one of Germany's greatest spaces for seeing important historical art. It boasts one of the most extensive collections of Western art in the country, from the Middle Ages through to the early twentieth century, and its Impressionist and Post-Impressionist collection is now the largest in the country, thanks to the permanent loan of 170 paintings by the Swiss collector Gerard J. Corboud--which included among its gems Van Gogh's great 1888 painting, "The Langlois Bridge at Arles." In this richly illustrated volume, all of the treasures from Wallraf's Impressionist collection are presented for the first time in stunning detail.
