This beautiful pocket anthology contains nineteenth-century French poetry illustrated with impressionist paintings. The impressionist painters rallied around the exhortation of the poet Baudelaire to paint directly from nature. The works of Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley and Degas glimmer with light, capturing the very moment of their creation with unprecedented vigour and clarity. In this book, Baudelaire's poetry features alongside the work of such writers as Alphonse de Lamartine, Stephane Mallarme, Paul Verlaine and Victor Hugo.
