Product Description

Review

"Each of the four volumes, which can stand alone, is well produced, reasonably priced, and replete with high-quality black-and-white and color plates. . . . The set presents the consistency and wide appeal of a survey while at the same time providing individually focused and methodologically explicit essays in the form of chapters on specialized topics relating to limited periods of time. . . . The intellectual integrity that permeates each volume, the excellent production qualities, and the overall superb quality of this specialized survey of modern art--all recommend this set highly for academic collections and for large public library collections emphasizing modern and contemporary European and American art."--"Choice"
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

This is the first in a series of four books about art and its interpretation from the mid-nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth. The authors seek to explain the most important issues confronting any study of modern art, without attempting exhaustive coverage. The books present a range of approaches characteristic of current art-historical debates. The first volume focuses on aspects of Realism, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism in Paris between about 1848 and 1900.

Format: Paperback
This book is designed with the O.U 3rd level(equivalent of final year undergraduate)course A316. But if you have ever wanted to study art, but don't want to commit yourself THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU. It covers some interesting and important artists from the mid 19th C onwards, and is a good way of introducing some of the more theoretical writings about modern art. However it is woefully short of British art, as are the three companion books, and being a francophile will help you lots.
