Imagine a snow scene in pinks, blues and yellows, or a building without an outline. Why paint workers in a dusty street, or a steam train on a smoky station? The Impressionists rebelled against the art styles of the past - and they created a splash! Impressionism was a revolution in color and form but how and why did it happen?
This book lifts the lid on the world of Impressionism. From inspiration to creation Art Revolutions - Impressionism tells you all you need to know about the leading works and figures of this ground-breaking art movement.

Grade 4-5-These titles give a brief overview of their subject before settling in on a short analysis of 10 leading artists whose works were integral to or had an impact on the respective movements. The masters are represented by two or three good-quality, full-color reproductions. The distinctive characteristics of each piece of art and its relevance to the movement are then discussed in a short paragraph. The paintings have been carefully selected to present an overview of the movement, and do not necessarily include the artists' most famous works. Sidebars shed meager light on additional aspects of Impressionism or Surrealism. Explanations are clearly written, enabling children to understand the complex theories. Students and teachers will appreciate the amount of clearly stated information in these books.
