The inexhaustible appeal of French Impressionism lies as much in the flavor of its time as in its incredible and prolific art. At its peak, from 1874 to 1887, the creative links between artist and society came into brilliant focus as never before. This lively volume plunges the reader into the heart of these painters' world as it examines the complex network of artistic and personal relationships - from studio to coffeehouse to gallery - that nurtured such figures as Manet, Degas, Cezanne, Monet, and Renoir. Their friendships, working relationships, and rivalries are illuminated by contemporary prints, cartoons, and photographs (many published for the first time), in newspaper and diary exerpts, and in color reproductions of some of their finest paintings.For art lovers, museum goers, college students, and gift givers, The Impressionists opens a wonderful window onto the creation of some of the masterpieces of French Impressionism.
