9780810963832: Impressionism

The art movement known as Impressionism has not always been as popular as it is today. When it first emerged in France in the last decades of the 19th century, critics reacted harshly, and few paintings were acquired by museums. This book, published to accompany a 1999 exhibition in the USA, explores how Impressionist works made their way into European museums: who collected them, when, and why - and why not. Extensively illustrated, the book presents both scholarly information and anecdote.

From Library Journal:

Impressionist works are among the most prized and popular museum possessions, yet European museums scorned them until the end of the 19th century. This exhibition catalog, compiled by a group of international art scholars, concentrates on the dealers, collectors, donors, and museum specialists in 13 European countries responsible for finally winning official sanction for Impressionism. Some 68 clear, full-page color plates, which display the oeuvre of 19 impressionist artists, are accompanied by detailed descriptions highlighting the provenance of each work. In addition, there are seven essays, including one by the great-granddaughter of Parisian art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, who uses family archives to examine the powerful influence her insightful ancestor exerted on the art market. A good choice for large public and museum libraries and special art history collections.AJoan Levin, MLS, Chicago
