Item description for Eyewitness: Impressionism by Jude Welton...

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. Art historian Jude Welton charts the evolution of Impressionism from its birth in the 1860s to the final exhibition of 1886, tracing the careers of the artists and examining the key influences on their work. See Monet's painting that inspired the name "Impressionism", how photography influenced Degas's studies of ballet dancers, and Renoir's delicate brushstrokes and bold use of pure colors. Learn how the invention of metal paint tubes made Impressionism possible, and how the Impressionists influenced Cezanne, Whistler, and other great artists. Discover why Manet refused to exhibit with the Impressionists, how social conventions restricted the work of the female Impressionists, how Manet and Renoir painted together in Monet's garden, and much, much more.

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.
