OP IMPRESSIONS OF FRANCE: MONET, RENOIR, PISSARRO AND THEIR RIVALS. John House et al. Hayward Gallery, London, 1995. Organized (in association with Museum of Fine Arts, Boston) and published by South Bank Centre, London. (Published in Great Britain as Landscapes of France: Impressionism and Its Rivals; ISBN 1-85332-142-7). 304 pp. with 176 ills. (133 col.). 25 x 28 cm. ISBN 0878464522 In English.
Highlighting the contrasting views of landscape embodied in works produced by French Salon artists and the Impressionists from the 1860s to 1890, this catalogue features full-page reproductions and individual analyses of some 55 paintings by Monet, Pissarro, Sisley, Cezanne and other Impressionist artists and of an equal number of canvases displayed in Salon exhibitions during the period, among them works by Corot, Courbet, Boudin, Daubigny and Millet. Four essays examine the varied thematic and stylistic concerns underlying the treatment of landscape imagery by the Impressionists and the Salon painters, the administration of the Salon and the ambivalence of official attitudes toward the landscape genre, and the relationship of landscape images to concepts of national identity in 19th-century France.
