The art of the impressionists

Keller, Horst1985
Books, Manuscripts
When, in 1874, a group of painters living in Paris decided to launch their own exhibition after repeated rejection by the official Salon, none of them would have dared to prophesy that their art, nicknamed Impressionism, would revolutionise artistic perception and technique. The author follows the careers of the great Impressionists; sheds light on their precursors, the English plein-air painters and the Barbizon school; describes the Neo-Impressionism of the Pointillists; and, with an assessment of Gauguin, Cezanne and Van Gogh, he indicates the direction art was to take after Impressionism.
