Late 19th-century Paris was the center and the inspiration for the artists of the Impressionist movement. Now Julian More invites readers to discover it for themselves in Impressionist Paris. More explores each area of Paris in turn, relating the history and appearance of places where the Impressionists lived and worked. He not only guides the visitor to their houses and studios, their favorite cafes and restaurants, but he also points out many of the scenes they painted. In the company of this informed and genial guide, one can stroll through the Montmartre of Renoir and Lautrec, the Argenteuil of Monet, and the Batignolles of Degas, Manet, and Czanne. In each chapter, More includes itineraries for excursions on foot or by car, as well as information on sites, museums, and tourist offices, and recommendations for places to eat and stay. Beautifully illustrated with paintings, photographs, and maps, Impressionist Paris offers an enchanting perspective on the City of Light.

Julian, author of several books on France, including the recent Pagnol's Provence (Trafalgar Square, 1995), takes us on a tour of areas of Paris associated with the Impressionist painters of the late 19th century. A good introduction to the Impressionist movement and short biographies of the artists set the stage for this unique travel book. The eight chapters on walks and drives through the various sections where artists lived or painted include many reproductions of relevant paintings, maps of walking or driving routes, commentary on sights of interest, and information regarding hotels, museums, restaurants, and tourist offices. Although it is a bit large and heavy for a pocket book, this well-produced guide will be a pleasure for art and Paris lovers. Recommended for all public libraries.?George M.
