Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0880390549, Paperback)Carnegie Museum of Art's impressive collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, prints and works on paper has never before been presented as a group. More than simply a selection of highlights, this handbook weaves together objects from the collection to tell the stories of these innovative movements and the groundbreaking artists behind them, including Manet, Monet, Degas, Cassatt, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Matisse. More than 75 entries exploring nearly 100 objects are punctuated by brief artist biographies that highlight themes of friendship, influence and artistic exchange. Close visual analyses of individual objects are supplemented by contextual illustrations to illuminate the place of these masterworks within the larger story of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Particularly rich holdings of works by Bonnard, Cassatt, Degas and Pissarro allow for an examination of the development of their art across media and over time.
