Discover who the Impressionists were and the influences that shaped their work.
Enter a world of light and color with this beautifully illustrated, authoritative guide to the paintings of Monet, Renoir, Degas, Morisot, Pissarro, Sisley, Caillebotte, and Cassatt.

Learn how the invention of metal paint tubes made Impressionism possible, and how the Impressionists influenced Cezanne, Whistler, and other great artists.

Reviews - What do customers think about Eyewitness: Impressionism?
An ok book. Apr 19, 2001
This book is mildly interesting and informative, even though it pales in comparison to DK's Eyewitness book about the Renaissance. Perhaps the Impressionist movement wasn't as interesting as the Renaissance for some reason. All I know is that this book isn't nearly as good.
