Impressionism: Paintings Collected by European Museums reveals the movement's historic struggle for acceptance, a story never fully told in the United States. This is a look at the history of collecting Impressionism - who collected it, when, and why - and why not.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Impressionist works are among the most prized and popular museum possessions, yet European museums scorned them until the end of the 19th century. This exhibition catalog, compiled by a group of international art scholars, concentrates on the dealers, collectors, donors, and museum specialists in 13 European countries responsible for finally winning official sanction for Impressionism. Some 68 clear, full-page color plates, which display the oeuvre of 19 impressionist artists, are accompanied by detailed descriptions highlighting the provenance of each work. In addition, there are seven essays, including one by the great-granddaughter of Parisian art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, who uses family archives to examine the powerful influence her insightful ancestor exerted on the art market. A good choice for large public and museum libraries and special art history collections.--Joan Levin, MLS, Chicago Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
