Art of the Bouquet: Impressionist Flowers is a magnificent explosion of color on the printed page. Between its covers is the loveliest of gardens: a gathering of the sensuous bouquet still lifes of the greatest French nineteenth-century painters, including Monet, Manet, Renoir, Cezanne, van Gogh, and Matisse. Encompassing both the predecessors and the immediate followers of the world's most popular group of painters, this volume collects bouquets of every season and every tone, ranging from the delicate pastels of columbines and peonies to the saturated reds and yellows of dahlias and zinnias. Drawn from public and private collections around the world, these splendid paintings are seen together for the first time in this book. Richard Whelan's introductory essay sets these works in their art-historical context, while a garden expert identifies the flowers depicted in each bouquet. Impressionist Flowers holds special appeal for art lovers, gardeners, and city dwellers who long to be gardeners.
Manet s Silence and the Poetics of Bouquets
Rubin also examines Manet's relationship to three of the leading critics of his day - Baudelaire, Zola, and Mallarme - giving special attention to Mallarme's appreciation, and eventual use in his own poetry, of the paradox between immersion and externality in Manet's oeuvre. Finally, the book uses the image of the bouquet to exemplify Manet's creative poetics through an exploration of his still life.
Defining an artistic era or movement is often a difficult task, as one tries to group individualistic expressions and artwork under one broad brush. Such is the case with impressionism, which culls together the art of a multitude of painters in the mid-19th century, including Monet, Cézanne, Renoir, Degas, and van Gogh. Basically, impressionism involved the shedding of traditional painting methods. The subjects of art were taken from everyday life, as opposed to the pages of mythology and history. In addition, each artist painted to express feelings of the moment instead of hewing to time-honoured standards. This description of impressionism, obviously, is quite broad and can apply to a wide array of styles. Nonetheless, it remains a very important school in the annals of art. Any current or budding art aficionado should become familiar with the impressionist movement and its impact on the art world. This book presents a sweeping study of this artistic period, from its origins to its manifestations in the works of some of art historys most revered painters. Following this overview is a substantial and selective bibliography, featuring access through author, title, and subject indexes.

Gustave Caillebotte and the Fashioning of Identity in Impressionist Paris
Over the last decades, Gustave Caillebotte (1848–1894), a long-neglected painter associated with the French Impressionists, has suddenly become the subject of intense public interest and renewed scholarly debate. With a series of important exhibitions recently showcasing his work, Caillebotte's enigmatic paintings have begun to exert an unexpected fascination for postmodern audiences, and they have become rich sites for interpretive debate. The essays that comprise this volume exemplify the best aspects of recent Caillebotte scholarship. They employ a variety of perspectives to examine the ways in which his art sheds light on the formation of individual and class identities in Paris during the early years of the Third Republic—an era of transition marked by the burgeoning of capitalism and the instabilities of newly shifting gender roles in the modern world. Addressing a wide range of major paintings by Caillebotte, the contributors reveal the compound ways in which the artist encoded his images and the multiple interpretations to which these images are susceptible. Juxtaposed so as to complement and challenge one another, these essays build a provocative whole as they probe issues of spectatorship and authorial intention. The contributors—all internationally known scholars and art professionals—create an important theoretical framework for the discussion of Caillebotte's work.

“I paint what I see and not what it pleases others to see.” What other words than these of Édouard Manet, seemingly so different from the sentiments of Monet or Renoir, could best define the Impressionist movement? Without a doubt, this singularity was explained when, shortly before his death, Claude Monet wrote: “I remain sorry to have been the cause of the name given to a group the majority of which did not have anything Impressionist.” In this work, Nathalia Brodskaïa examines the contradictions of this late 19th-century movement through the paradox of a group who, while forming a coherent ensemble, favoured the affirmation of artistic individuals. Between academic art and the birth of modern, non-figurative painting, the road to recognition was long. Analysing the founding elements of the movement, the author follows, through the works of each of the artists, how the demand for individuality gave rise to modern painting.

Through Cézanne’s musings and philosophy of colour and form - captured vividly by the author - the reader enters the artist's creative world, and visits the vertical and architectural gardens Cézanne loved, along with Mt. Sainte-Victoire, the mountain he immortalized in his paintings.
