Colours of Impressionism : Masterpieces from the Musee D'Orsay
More than sixty-five Impressionist masterpieces from the renowned collection of the Musée D’Orsay in Paris feature in this major exhibition catalogue. Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée D’Orsaycharts the revolution of colour that lies at the very heart of Impressionism and includes master works by Monet, Renoir, Manet, Morisot, Pissaro and Cézanne, among many others. From the dark tones of Manet’s Spanish-influenced paintings, to the rich green and blue hues of the French countryside as painted by Cézanne, Monet and Pisarro, to the rosy pigments of Renoir’s and Morisot’s female figures, this book traces the development of colour in the Impressionists’ radical reshaping of painting in the nineteenth century.
