In 1874, a simple review of a modest art exhibit in Paris announced to the world the birth of one of the greatest art revolutions in historyImpressionism.

The group included Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Paul Cezanne, and Felix Bracquemond. The growth and development of Impressionism is fully described and illustrated in this handsome, comprehensive volume. These along with the works of Frederic Bazille, Mary Cassat, Gustave Caillebotte, Paul Signac, James Ensor, Paul Gauguin, and many others are revealed through a knowledgeable text and 352 full-color reproductions.
