This beautiful book provides a brief introduction to Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and early modern paintings made between 1860 and 1905––a highly innovative and exciting time in the history of art––through 38 masterpieces from the remarkable collections of the National Gallery, London. Among the featured highlights are Manet’s Corner of a Café-Concert, Monet’s Water-Lily Pond, Gallen-Kallela’s Lake Keitele, Cézanne’s Bathers (Les Grandes Baigneuses), Adolph Menzel’s Afternoon in the Tuileries Gardens, and Picasso’s Child with a Dove. Manet to Picasso includes an essay by Christopher Riopelle on the formation of the collection along with concise discussions of each of the featured works––arranged chronologically by artist––offering a look at the genesis and development of modern art.

 

 

 

Christopher Riopelle is Curator of Post-1800 Paintings and Charlotte Appleyard, Sarah Herring, Nancy Ireson, and Anne Robbins are Assistant Curators of Nineteenth-Century Painting, all at the National Gallery, London.
