Courtauld Impressionists : From Manet to Cezanne

Regular price £16.95 £0.00
Tax included.

A handsome book that brings together impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterpieces from the Courtauld Gallery

The book features works by Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Seurat, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and essays discussing iconic paintings such as Manet's A Bar at the Folies-Bergère and exploring the fascinating story of the formation of the Courtauld collection. For its founder, the industrialist Samuel Courtauld, it was a deeply felt and personal lifelong ambition that these great pictures should be seen and enjoyed by the widest possible public; and his creation of a 50,000 purchase fund for the Tate and the National Gallery helped to lay the foundations of Britain's national collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art.
