About the Artist
Frédéric Bazille (1841–1870) was an instrumental figure in the impressionist movement, but remains relatively unknown. His contemporaries included Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, and Édouard Manet. Born into a wealthy family, Bazille helped support his less fortunate associates by giving them space in his studio and materials to use.
This notebook, in the style of a French exercise book or cahier, features on its cover Bazille’s The Family Gathering (summer 1867–early winter 1868), on view in the exhibition Frédéric Bazille and the Birth of Impressionism.
