Library Journal
This beautifully illustrated and designed catalog by Wilson-Bareau, one of the world's leading art historians on Edouard Manet (1832-83), and independent scholar DeGener showcases Manet's seascapes and accompanies a major exhibition held at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam. It includes 132 color and 74 black-and-white illustrations of the exhibit's more than 100 paintings, watercolors, and drawings, culled from 60 public and private collections. Further exploring the French master's marine paintings within their historical, social, and cultural contexts, nine distinguished scholars and museum curators investigate Manet's influence on the marine paintings of James McNeill Whistler, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Eva Gonzales, and others. This unique and noteworthy book follows two groundbreaking catalogs: Manet/Vel zquez and Manet and the American Civil War. Featuring a high concentration of color images as well as substantial new findings concerning the artist's works and plausible origins of Impressionism, this text belongs in most large public and academic library collections.-Cheryl Ann Lajos, Free Lib. of Philadelphia Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
