Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In his introduction, James N. Wood, director and president of the Art Institute of Chicago, credits Chicago's art patrons and civic-minded leaders with the foresight to create the museum's world-renowned impressionist and post-impressionist collections. The 147 paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures are presented chronologically and in full color. Brief descriptions by art historians, accompanying each illustration, point out details that may not be obvious to a casual viewer and also concentrate on the influences of other artists as well as interactions among artists. Libraries that have Richard R. Brettell's three-volume set French Salon Artists, French Impressionists, and Post-Impressionists (Abrams, 1987. o.p.)--will find a lot of overlap; however, this volume is international in scope, especially with its inclusion of American impressionists, and does provide a good overview. Since these seminal works have such universal appeal, this publication is recommended for general collections and will be most appreciated by visitors to the museum.--Joan Levin, MLS, Chicago Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
