by Ingo F. Walther
Impressionism is one of the world’s favorite periods of painting. But, despite blockbuster exhibitions, record-breaking auction prices, and packed museums, many aspects of impressionism remain inadequately researched. This book fills in the gaps. In addition to raising the profile of unjustly neglected pioneers such as Berthe Morisot, Lucien Pissarro, and Gustave Caillebotte, it explores the characteristics of impressionism—from painting en plein air to vivid color contrasts—not only in the movement’s native France but also across the rest of Europe and North America.
