created his atmospheric landscapes. With an introduction providing the
historical background to Impressionism, and a comprehensive section on artists
materials, this is a highly practical book that will appeal both to beginners
and more experienced artists, as well as to the many thousands of people
inspired by the brilliance and beauty of Impressionist painting.
