A Companion to Impressionism Presenting an expansive view of the
study of Impressionism, this pioneering volume breaks new thematic
ground while also reconsidering questions concerning the
defini-tion, chronology, and membership of the impressionist
movement. In 34 original essays from established and emerging
scholars, this collection offers a diverse range of developing
topics and new critical approaches to the interpretation of
impressionist art. Focusing on the 1860s to 1890s, A Companion to
Impressionism explores artists who are well-represented in
impressionist studies, including Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Cassatt,
as well as Morisot, Caillebotte, Bazille, and other significant yet
lesser-known artists. The essays cover a wide variety of
methodologies in addressing such topics as Impressionism's global
predominance at the turn of the 20th century, the relationship
between Impressionism and the emergence of new media, the materials
and techniques of the Impressionists, as well as the movement's
exhibition and reception history. This innovative volume also
includes new discussions of modern identity in Impressionism in the
contexts of race, nationality, gender, and sexuality and through
its explorations of the international reach and influence of
Impressionism. Part of the acclaimed Wiley Blackwell Companions to
Art History series, this important addition to scholarship in this
field stands as the 21st century's first major and large-scale
academic reassessment of Impressionism. Featuring essays by
academics, curators, and conservators from around the world,
including those from France, Germany, the United States, the United
Kingdom, Japan, Turkey, and Argentina, this is an invaluable text
for students and scholars studying Impressionism and late
19th-century European art, Post-Impressionism, modern art, and
modern French cultural history.
