The Impressionists were the first revolutionaries of modern art whose ideas of what an artist should paint and how he should paint it drew upon themselves a fire storm of abuse and ridicule. Today it is difficult for us to see what all the fuss was about. Witness the paintings of Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, and Edgar Degas. This volume, published in the USA by Castle Books, 1975, is edited by Denis Thomas, who illustrates in 96 pages the works of 12 principal artists in 45 color plates and 21 black and white pictures that demonstrate the change that this movement brought in the space of 20 years to the course of Western Art.
