This is a very beautiful artbook of American Impressionism paintings. This style is related to European Impressionism and was practiced by American artists during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The book features more than 60 paintings from well know and also less familiar artists. 14 American artists are featured, and just to name a few there are Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent, James McNeill Whistler, Theodore Robinson, William Merritt Chase, and Childe Hassam.
It's quite fascinating to see how the loose brushwork and vivid colours work together to form beautiful paintings. Many paintings are printed large so it's joy to study the brush strokes.
Besides the art, there are also expert essays discussing the Impressionism movement, and the inspiration these artists drew from contact with French artists such as Claude Monet and Edgar Degas. There's plenty to read to provide the context to these wonderful paintings.
