    This 50 book was much better then the fist one I read 50 Artists you should know The history in the beginning gave a good introduction of where impressionism came from and what they were trying to accomplish It was very heavy on Manet and Monet and again in my book Manet is not an impressionist I wish there was Gauguin and Van Gogh there only I think three of there works I almost like there work better then Manet, but each to their own A better coffee table book.

    I don t know what sparked my sudden interest in Impressionism, but this book has been a great, accesible primer on the subject.This is a wonderful primer introduction to the world of Impressionism.It mostly sticks with the French and Europeans that began and defined the movement, but also touches on some of the Americans who used the style, as well as some of the kids who came along towards the decline of the movement, who would go on to be consider the Post Impressionists.

    For what this was it was really really good This was a great introduction to both Impressionism and the artists behind it I have to say the history at the start of the book was a little boring but it did help me understand a lot of the things they said about the paintings or painters themselves I love that they included female impressionists in here I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an introduction to this part of art or even just the subject of art itself.

    Being a huge impressionist lover it s no doubt this book jumped off the shelf at me saying Pick Me Pick Me This is a wonderful book filled with reproductions of the paintings Each has a short bio of the artist, accompanied by explanatory notes about their style and how they contributed to the development of impressionism If you are a new to the art world this is a nice introduction for someone starting out.

    A great introduction to the art by impressionist painters I read this book as a precursor to an exhibit on impressionsim at the Milwaukee Art Museum It was very helpful as a review before the viewing It s simplicity was appreciated, and it highlighted the best of the best Beautiful colored plates.

    Very good book for a self study of 50 major Impressionist works and their artists I have actually seen several of these paintings in museums in US and in Europe, so this is a nice way to follow up with context.
