The unrivalled single-volume introduction to the art of the Impressionists

An extended and highly readable introduction covers the background to the movement, its heroic years, its followers and an account of the masters in their later years.

Full-page colour reproductions of over 100 paintings are faced by informative and intriguing descriptions: short biographies of thirty of the artists and a bibliography make this a highly useful reference work as well as a pleasure to browse.
