This text on the Impressionists features the work of 29 artists, including not only the most well-known French painters, but also English, American and Italian artists. It features the work of the precursors of the movement, such as Edouard Manet and Delacroix, and its most famous representatives like Claude Monet and Auguste Renoir. In addition, the eccentric and somewhat peripheral artists of the movement such as Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, are featured, as well as lesser-known Impressionists such as James Whistler and Mary Cassatt. The book is also a chronological survey of the life and times of the Impressionists, from the l870s to the death of Monet in 1926, and it provides a fascinating analysis of the contemporary social and political events which influenced them.
