The art of the Impressionists is loved by experts and nonexperts alike. Smith reexamines this popular group of artists in light of recent scholarship on the social context of late 19th-century France. Among the artists profiled are Renoir, Degas, Monet, Pissaro, and Cassatt. 112 illustrations, 84 in color.From the Publisher:
In this book, Impressionism is presented not merely as a style of art, but also unveils how the artists themselves may be viewed within the context of their own social and cultural "moment." While providing an orderly survey of the great artists for the general reader; the book also imparts new ideas about the Impressionists for readers more familiar with the subject.
