LE PAYSAGE PROVENCAL ET L'ECOLE DE MARSEILLE: AVANT L'IMPRESSIONNISME, 1845-1874 (Provencal Landscape Painting and the School of Marseille: Before Impressionism, 1845-1874). Jean-Roger Soubiran.

Providing the first thorough assessment of the contributions of Provencal artists to the rise of naturalist landscape painting in mid-19th century France, this massive catalogue features illustrations of some 800 works by the four major figures of the School of Marseille (Emile Loubon, Prosper Gresy, Marius Engaliere and Paul Guigou) and by many other painters of the region, including Auguste Aiguier and Adolphe Monticelli. The first section of the scholarly volume comprises nine chapters exploring the social and economic factors that established Provence as an important cultural center during the Second Empire and examining in detail the development of the area's progressive art community and the artistic exchanges between painters in Paris and the Midi region. The second section extensively evaluates the collective and individual achievements of the leading plein-air painters in Marseille and discusses the marine views, orientalist studies and idealized landscapes produced by other local artists during the period.
