Description
Situated in the heart of Paris in a renovated train station, the Musée d'Orsay boasts the greatest collection of impressionist and postimpressionist art in the world, including works by Bouguereau, Courbet, Renoir, Cézanne, van Gogh, Monet, Manet, Whistler, and Gauguin. In this chunky, oversized catalog, museum director Serge Lemoine and a team of curators and specialists tour this extraordinary collection, seen in 830 color reproductions of works ranging from the mid-19th-century dominance of the Academy through the shock of impressionism to the rise of modern art in the early 20th century.

"Sorbonne professor and Musée d'Orsay director Lemoine divides the collection into six distinct periods, beginning in 1848 ('Ideal or Reality'), and moving through impressionism, history painting, 'Construction and Color,' pictorialism, symbolism, and the many nascent movements 'After 1900.' Nearly 70 short essays by multiple scholars provide context for works by ... mostly French, artists. No matter how well one thinks one knows them, having them all in one place is a delight."—Publishers Weekly
