This book focuses on a selection of 126 Impressionist and Post-Impressionist pictures from the Museum's collection. It begins with the work of Johan Barthold Jongkind and Eugfcne Boudin, two painters who, in the early 1860s, exerted a strong influence on many of the young artists who emerged in the 1870s as the practitioners of the style that we now recognize as the classic phase of Impressionism. Their keen interest in light effects and their choice of subject matter appealed to the younger artists who clearly benefited from their example.
Henri Fantin-Latour, too, is included in this book. Although he was not an Impressionist, his realist still lifes of the 1860s and 1870s reflect the impetus that gave rise to Impressionism. Indeed, he frequented the Cafe Guerbois, where he became friendly with Manet and his circle. His work lies at the periphery of Impressionism, but in spirit his pictures often achieve a nearly identical goal.
