Overview

An engaging and beautifully illustrated overview of one of the finest Impressionist and Post-Impressionist collections in the United States Featuring 90 highlights from the Philadelphia Museum of Art's stellar collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, this handsome volume includes iconic works such as Paul Cezanne's Large Bathers, Vincent van Gogh's Sunflowers, Edgar Degas's Interior, Edouard Manet's Le Bon Bock, Toulouse-Lautrec's At the Moulin Rouge, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Great Bathers.Providing a rich and encompassing view of the artists and the innovative works they created, the entries consider both the experimental techniques employed in the paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings, as well as how these objects functioned within the contexts of the art market, social history, and politics. An introductory essay examines the circumstances and individuals-including Mary Cassatt's brother, the Philadelphia railroad executive Alexander J. Cassatt-that led to the formation of one of the most distinguished Impressionist and Post-Impressionist collections in the United States.
