Overview

This reference provides biographical, historical, and critical information on Neo-Impressionist painting and its most significant painters. Neo-Impressionism, also called Divisionism and Pointillism, was one of the most innovative and startling late 19th-century French avant-garde styles. Over 2,000 books, articles, manuscripts, and audiovisual materials as well as chronologies, biographical sketches, and exhibition lists are cited. Also provided are both primary and secondary bibliographies for each artist. Secondary bibliographies capture details about each artist's life and career, relationships with other artists, work in various media, iconography, critical reception and interpretation, archival sources and more.

Art scholars will appreciate the comprehensive bibliographic research contained in this one volume. Entries on Neo-Impressionism in general, on exhibitions, and the primary and secondary bibliographies of artists follow an introduction about Neo-Impressionism and a Neo-Impressionism chronology that spans the years 1881 to 1905. An index of art works and an index of personal names complete the volume.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Librarians Clement (U. of Tennessee-Knoxville) and Dubois-Pillet (Brigham Young U.) compile and organize the literature on Neo- Impressionism in general as well as the eight particular French and Belgian artists. For each, they include a biographical sketch, chronology, primary and secondary bibliographies, and exhibition lists. They cover the whole careers of their subjects, not just their neo-impressionist stage. They gleaned the information from catalogues and indexes and guides to collections at major art museums, universities, and scholarly and artistic institutes in the US and western Europe.
