Faces of Impressionism explores the development of the portrait in French painting and sculpture between 1860 and 1910 as showcased in one of the world’s greatest collections of Impressionist art—the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Splendidly illustrated, this book assesses the portrait collection through the expert eyes of George T. M. Shackelford and Guy Cogeval, as well as from the perspective of a new generation of distinguished scholars, Isolde Pludermacher and Xavier Rey. Featuring some of the best-loved portraits in the history of art—Cézanne’s Woman with a Coffee Pot, Degas’s L’Absinthe—this handsome volume includes masters such as Denis, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Seurat, Signac, and Toulouse-Lautrec, and a detailed discussion on Manet and his followers as depicted in Fantin-Latour’s renowned group portrait A Studio in the Batignolles.
George T. M. Shackelford is deputy director of the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, Texas. Guy Cogeval is president and Isolde Pludermacher and Xavier Rey are curators of paintings, all at the Musée d'Orsay, Paris.
