Théodore Duret was a French journalist, author and art critic. He was one of the first advocates of the painting movement Impressionism. The name Impressionist, Duret tells us, was first a term of contempt used against a group of painters who were inspired by Manetís work yet were rejected by authorities. They therefore held exhibitions of their own. Many of Duretís writings were devoted to explaining to the nineteenth century public how the new trends in painting were a continuation of traditions in western painting. In this vein, Duret published this standard art reference textbook encompassing the lives of the foremost Impressionist painters. The work is notable for containing eight original prints by some the most famed Impressionist artists. Rare in complete form and excellent condition. Bookseller Inventory # D4519
