From Our Editors

The idea behind Impressionism was to capture a single moment of life through a hasty, rough sketch, or an ‘impression.’ Though the works of artists like Renoir, Monet and Degas seem quiet and peaceful when viewed by today’s audience, in their own time, they were seen as a defiant and outrageous departure from the accepted art form. Impressionism places this movement in its social, political and philosophical contexts. James H. Rubin’s thoughtful work explores issues such as the influence of photography on painting, the growing art market and ideas of gender and race. Highlighted by more than 200 colour illustrations of the artworks, this book offers a fresh look at the work of both famous and lesser-known Impressionist painters.
