IMPRESSIONISM IN BRITAIN. Kenneth McConkey and Anna Gruetzner Robins. Barbican Art Gallery, London, 1995. Published in association with Yale University Press, New Haven. 224 pp. with 240 ills. (155 col.). 28 x 23 cm. LC 94-41771 ISBN 0300063342 In English.
Closely examining the reception of French Impressionism in Britain and the movement's influence on artistic developments in the country during the late Victorian and the Edwardian eras, this scholarly catalogue presents fine illustrations and individual discussions of some 160 paintings by Walter Sickert, Stanhope Forbes, William McTaggart, Walter Osborne, John Lavery, Roderic O'Conor, Joseph Crawhall and more than 80 other prominent and lesser-known English, Scottish and Irish artists as well as compositions by Whistler, Sargent and such French painters as Monet, Bastien-Lepage and Degas. Biographical profiles of the featured figures and an essay discussing a pivotal 1889 exhibition of paintings by the London Impressionists group augment a lengthy text evaluating the complex interactions of British, Irish and French Impressionists, the role of dealers and collectors in promoting their works, and the distinctive interpretations of Impressionist themes and aesthetics by artists in Britain.
