Presented in four seasonal chapters - Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter - Russell Ash considers how the Impressionists depicted the seasonal changes they witnessed. Complemented by selected prose and verse by authors including Emile Zola, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and William Blake, as well as extracts from the writings of the artists themselves, it draws a thorough picture of the influence of the seasons on the Impressionists' chosen motifs.
From Monet and Renoir, to Cezanne and Van Gogh, this beautifully designed and produced book not only features all the major Impressionist artists and their masterpieces, but also the works of less familiar associates. Accessible to readers of all ages, and providing fascinating insights into the lives and creations of the Impressionists, this is the perfect book for lovers of their magnificent art.
