Edited by Margaret Morgan Grasselli and Andrew Robison
Spanning the period from romanticism to neo-impressionism, this beautiful book reveals the extraordinary richness, diversity, and inventiveness that fueled a remarkably creative period of French drawing called "the paper century" in the opening essay. Brilliant drawings by Degas, Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, and Seurat as well as by many of their peers allow for a close inspection of such key artistic movements as realism, impressionism, and the art of the Nabis and symbolists. With some 150 color reproductions, this volume serves as a perfect introduction to the exquisite techniques and talents of artists whose work continues to inspire and amaze.
