Description

Five eminent American museums join in an unprecedented cooperative venture to create this magnificent volume.

By pooling all their Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterpieces, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Nelson-Aktins Museum of Art, the Saint Louis Art Museum, and the Toledo Museum of Art have gathered a stunning panorama that rivals any collection in the world. Four key artists receive particularly strong representation: there are 13 pieces by Degas, 8 by van Gogh, 12 by Monet, and 10 by Pissarro. But there are also numerous examples by other masters of the movement, including Cassatt, Cézanne, Gaugin, Manet, Morisot, Renoir, Seurat, Sisley, and Toulouse-Lautrec. Each work appears in a full-color reproduction, with an essay by Marc S. Gerstein, an Associate Professor of Art History, exploring in full its history, technique, and iconography.
