Product summary

Item # (in stock)

The Art Institute of Chicago boasts one of the largest and finest holdings of late nineteenth-century French art in the world.  Drawing upon the latest art-historical findings, this lavishly illustrated book features over ninety works engagingly discussed in terms of the memorable era in which they were created.  From the paintings of Edouard Manet- notorious for his bold and direct style- to the light-filled Impressionist masterpieces of Claude Monet and the influential Post-Impressionist canvases of Paul Cezanne, the book offers a fascinating overview of the Impressionist movement and its legacy.  Each handsomely reproduced image exemplifies the diversity of ideas and extraordinary wealth of talent at work during this remarkable period.  Also included is an illustrated chronology documenting the formation of the Art Institute's world-renowned collection.
