The Impressionists began one of the richest chapters in the history of art - a chapter that in a sense never ended, because Impressionism, originally reviled, is now universally popular. It also had an especially long life as an active school, because its concentrations on the visible led generations of artists to an exploration of nature as a source for colour that could function independently of form. Gradually escaping its traditional role as an identifier of objects, Impressionist colour founded a realm where painting is reality, a unique world of sensory delight. Their successors, the Post-Impressionist only elaborated further on this concept. This title, with its essays and over 100 colour plates, studies the evolution and reinvention of painting through examining the works of masters of the time in context to their fellow artists. It provides a thorough focus of the dramatic artistic development of the century between 1850 and 1950 through the remarkable pieces of this collection. Contents include: Foreword by Timothy Rub, Director of the Cleveland Museum of Art; The Accuracy of Things: The Impressionist Epoch; Mortals, I Am Beautiful: Rodin and Rosso; Parallel Harmonies: Beyond Impressionism; Surprise Me: Picasso and the Avant-garde; North Light: Modernism in Northern Europe and the British Isles, Works of Art Produced in conjunction with a travelling exhibition on view at venues in North America during 2007 and 2008.
