    A good uick overview of impressionist paintings Impressionism is one of my favorite art movements and I was familiar with almost all of the artists in this book having seen their work in various museums The book gives about the euivalent information as a museum exhibit offering an overview of the movement then a paragraph on each of about 50 paintings A few of my favorites include Manet’s “Bar at the Folies Berger’s” Degas’ “L’Absinthe” Pissarro’s “Woman in a Close” and Renoir’s “Le Moulin De la Galette” and “Luncheon at the Boating Party” which features his future wife focusing on her dog while everyone else is expressing interest in someone I appreciated this kind of backstory on some paintings as well as info about the artistsThe uality of the printing is decent but the images are relatively small so it’s not a book that lends itself to detailed study This is intended as an overview art book for casual reading and not a high end coffee table book
