Impressionist Painting, Its Genesis and Development

G. Newnes, limited, 1904 - 126 pagina's
An excellent overview of the Impressionist movement, from its early influences of English landscapes by J.M.W. Turner and John Constable to the major Impressionist artists living and working in Paris. This volume includes illustrations, portraits and information about the significant painters from this period including …douard Manet, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and August Renoir. Also included are lesser-known Impressionist painters such as Alfred Sisley, J.F. Raffaelli, Emile Claus and Childe Hassam. Written by English artist Wynford Dewhurst, this book was the first significant account of the Impressionist movement to be published in English. The author dedicated the publication to Claude Monet, who inspired his own art.

Pagina 144 - But cynicism was the great means of eloquence of the Middle Ages; and with cynicism Degas has again rendered the nude an artistic possibility. Three coarse women, middle-aged and deformed by toil, are perhaps the most wonderful. One sponges herself in a tin bath; another passes a rough nightdress over her lumpy shoulders, and the touching ugliness of this poor human creature goes straight to the heart.

Pagina 17 - Great men may jest with saints : 'tis wit in them ; But, in the less, foul profanation. Lucio. Thou'rt in the right, girl ; more o' that. Isab. That in the captain's but a choleric word Which in the soldier is flat blasphemy.
