$26.00

Ships in 5-7 business days

Most art historians agree that modern art began in Paris during the 1860s. A circle of painters, whom we now know as the Impressionists, began painting pictures with rapid, loose brushwork. They turned to everyday street life for subjects, instead of overblown heroic scenes, and organized their own independent exhibitions.

This indispensable overview traces the restless energy of modern art with a year-by-year succession of the groundbreaking artworks that shook standards and broke down barriers. Introductory essays outline the most significant and influential movements alongside explanatory texts for each major work and its artist.
