Blockbuster exhibitions, record sums at auction, Impressionism continues to be at once one of the most popular and the most fascinating movements in the history of modern art. This book embraces this much-loved movement but seeks to shed light on its lesser known people and places. As well as discussing the most renowned artists, it aims to introduce the reader to other artists who remain neglected by conventional accounts of Impressionism: Bazille, Caillebotte, Berthe Morisot, or Lucien Pissarro. It likewise explores French Impressionism alongside related art movements that flourished simultaneously in the rest of Europe and North America.
