A major study of the emergence of the Impressionist movement in the Paris art world of the 1860s, this scholarly catalogue features excellent color reproductions and individual analyses of nearly 200 paintings drawn from scores of international collections, including landscapes, portraits, nudes, still lifes, history paintings and genre compositions by Courbet, Manet, Bazille, Cezanne, Degas, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro and 27 other prominent and lesser-known figures. Augmented by a detailed chronology of the activities of the early Impressionists from 1859 to 1870, nine essays delineate the character of the French artistic establishment of the period as reflected in contemporary critical commentaries on the Salon of 1859 and closely reexamine the relationships among the artists of the "New Painting" and their individual contributions to the transformation of traditional themes and motifs.
