Impressionism is often considered the final nineteenth-century precursor to the radical experimentation of modernism. However, every style has a precursor. This impressive book explores what movements paved the way for the atmospheric light, colour, and composition characteristic of the impressionist works themselves.
Discover a stunning selection of nineteenth-century French paintings that trace the history of French art from the Romantics, to the School of Barbizon and the circle of Honfleur, up to Impressionism.
