Impression...who better than Monet in 1867, could have defined what was to become the most well-known and beloved pictorial movement? Nevertheless, it took more than thirty years for these artists (Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir...) to be accepted and acknowledged by their contemporaries. Impressionism was the first step towards modern painting, and it revolutionized an artistic background suffocated by academic norms. Taking the Impressionistic revolution even further, Post-impressionism was to completely liberate the colour and revealed unknown horizons (with Seurat, Van Gogh, Cezanne,...) which became unmissable passages for the greatest names of 20th century painting (Picasso, Matisse, Kandinsky...) You will rediscover, along the pages of this book, the freshness, the colours and the quality of these timeless masterworks.
