INSPIRING IMPRESSIONISM: DAUBIGNY, MONET, VAN GOGH. Michael Clarke et al. Taft Museum of Art, Cincinnati, 2016. Published by National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 176 pp. 27 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781906270865 In English.
Publisher's description: Charles Francois Daubigny (1817-1878) was one of the most important French artists of the nineteenth century. Admired by the Impressionists, he routinely painted outdoors, invented new subjects such as the mid-river view, and developed a radically "unfinished" style. He supported younger artists at the Salon and introduced both Monet and Pissarro to the Paris art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel. In later life he explored a more subjective interpretation of nature in his sunsets and nocturnes, inspiring not only Monet but Vincent van Gogh, who spent the last two months of his life close to Daubigny's home and studio at Auvers-sur-Oise. These themes and others are explored through a series of essays that examine his interactions with the young impressionists, the market response to his paintings, his pioneering use of a studio boat, the evolution of his highly original technical processes, his role as the leader of an artists' colony and his importance for Van Gogh. The book accompanies a touring exhibition at the Taft Museum of Art, Cincinnati, USA from 19 February to 26 May 2016; the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh from 25 June to 2 October 2016 and the Van Gogh Museum from 21 October 2016 to 29 January 2017.
