In this magnificent volume, William Rau presents a comprehensive guide to this era of 'remarkable artistic dynamism and diversity', with lavishly illustrated chapters on movements ranging chronologically from the Barbizon School and Romanticism to Post-Impressionist painting; and on motifs including landscape, maritime, costume and Belle Epoque painting.
