Impressionism: Art, Leisure, and Parisian Society

Robert Herbert, Author Yale University Press $35 (312p) ISBN 978-0-300-05083-7
In this ``provocative study,'' Herbert explains how Paris's architecture became raw material for the impressionists and analyzes the social forces that shaped individual painters. According to PW , ``Picture after picture is given a fresh, often unexpected reading, and the more than 300 plates (two-thirds in color) are deftly interwoven with the sprightly narrative.'' (Nov.)
