An unprecedented volume featuring over two hundred drawings by twenty Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists.
Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne , Georges Seurat, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh and their colleagues created some of the most beautiful drawings in the history of art. This book sets drawings by the impressionists and post-impressionists in the context of late nineteenth-century France, explaining why these particular works are as important as these artists’ paintings in the representation of modernity.
With short introductory essays on twenty of the leading Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists, each followed by a portfolio of their drawings, this beautifully highlights an aspect of French avant-garde art that was of immense importance for the art movements that followed.
