This publication draws on the renowned collection of Impressionist works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the National Gallery of Victoria’s partner for the 2021 Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition. Artworks by leading exponents of French Impressionism, including Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Cassatt and Sisley, are reproduced in high detail, and are accompanied by a suite of new texts by curators at both art museums.
This substantial volume offers insights into the conditions leading to the emergence of French Impressionism in the 1870s, the radical modes of experimentation that characterise the movement, and the many connections between its leading artists, creating an informative study of this enduringly fascinating art movement.
