What is more inviting that a sunny garden, full of wonderful colours and the scent of flowers and who captured this better than the Impressionists with their canvasses full of colour and light? This warm Konemann publication explores the rich history and striking evolution of Impressionist garden paintings. By the 1860s, gardens were highly popular in France; the introduction and cross-breeding of new plant and flower species and the opening to the public of the former royal parks had stimulated a great horticultural movement. With their delight in colour, plein-air effects and modern-life themes, the Impressionists and their followers naturally turned to gardens for artistic inspiration. This book follows the spread of the Impressionist garden in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and illustrates not only masterpieces of Impressionism by Monet, Manet, Rousseau, Pissarro, Renoir, Sisley, Morisot, Hanna Pauli, Caillebotte, Cezanne and others, but also works by such forebears as Delacroix, Corot, Courbet and later figures like Van Gogh, Gauguin, Klimt and Sargent and Max Liebermann and Seurat. Plus dappled and inviting tea parties by Pompeo Mariani, pointillism in the Orchard by Theo van Rysselberghe, the lady in red leaning on a lamppost by Jean-Louis Forain. Spectacular illustrations and accessible, engaging text, for the art lover or gardening enthusiast. 28.96 x 26.92cm. Hundreds of colour illustrations, many double page. 260 heavyweight with colour pages, amazing value for money for a glorious art book.
