About this item

This magnificently illustrated book draws on the latest scholarly research to reveal new perspectives on the techniques and influences of Impressionist landscapes. This breathtaking survey takes a multi-faceted approach in its study of 90 seminal works of Impressionist art. Accompanying the inaugural exhibition of the new Museum Barberini in Potsdam, Germany, the book features contributions by six leading scholars who examine a wide range of themes, from the use of repetition and variation to the ecological climate in which the artists worked. Underlying and unifying these perspectives is the inexorable change of the landscape itself. Poised on the brink of the Modern Era, the Impressionists documented the effects of industrialization on French landscapes. Amid these transitions, the artists used the landscape itself to advance their own explorations into the field of color theory. The book also explores the influence of modern poetry and photography on the creation of these paintings. With beautiful reproductions from the masters—including Monet, Pissarro, Sisley, and Renoir—this volume takes an exciting new approach to the study of Impressionism, while introducing audiences to the holdings of remarkable new museum.
