Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This remarkable exhibition catalog was published in conjunction with an important retrospective exhibition first held at the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais in Paris and then at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The book opens predictably with the well-documented and critically researched Salon of 1859. However, the subsequent eight chapters discuss how various artists interpreted specific genre (e.g., history painting, the nude, still life) while employing impressionist technique. These sections are profusely illustrated and well documented with supplementary photographs. The footnotes are cleverly arranged as sideheads on each page, which makes this book a more useful tool for further research, but unfortunately they were not translated from the original French. The remaining 200 pages include a chronology of works in the catalog, a historical chronology from 1859 to 1870, and the exhibit catalog itself arranged alphabetically by artist. The thorough, scholarly apparatus provided for each exhibited work is exemplary. This book should be acquired by all types of libraries for knowledgeable readers in the field.-P. Steven Thomas, Illinois State Univ., Normal
Booknews
An elaborate work, published in conjunction with an extensive exhibition of Impressionist art. It differs from most catalogues of large retrospectives by focusing on the Impressionist movement itself, its origins, its new subjects and techniques, and the interrelations among the artists themselves, rather than on the work of individual artists. Following the text and color reproductions, the volume includes a chronology of works and a chronology of events occurring from 1859 through 1870. The catalogue of paintings in the exhibition includes biographical material on the painter, a description and provenance for each painting, a listing of exhibitions, a short critical text, and related bibliography.
