KIRKUS REVIEW

By the author of Modern Painters, etc., this is an interpretative presentation of the individual painters who contributed to that ""most glorious moment of modern art"" when line, form and colour took precedence over theme and launched a new aesthetic era. With a little of the personality and the career of each painter, his working methods and technique, this follows the style of each and the progression of the outstanding pictures as painted by Manet, Degas, Monet, Pissarro, Sisley, Renoir, Cezanne, Seurat, Gauguin, Van Gogh and Toulouse Lautrec. There is a proportionate greater or lesser stress according to the importance of the painter.
