Into the Undergrowth
Sous-bois (or undergrowth) emerged as a sub-genre of landscape painting in 19th-century French art, typically in the form of a study of tree trunks and the forest floor, or trees with a solitary figure. This exhibition catalogue explores Van Gogh’s contributions through 30 paintings by the artist and his contemporaries and precursors, including Corot, Gauguin and Cézanne. Accompanying essays examine the Barbizon School, Van Gogh’s nature painting and his 1890 canvas, Undergrowth with Two Figures.
Monet's Water Lilies
The Agapanthus Triptych
Although Claude Monet intended the three water lily paintings he named Agapanthus to stay together, the panels were bought by three different American galleries in the late 1950s. In 2011, the paintings were reunited and exhibited as a triptych at the Saint Louis Art Museum. This volume, with an essay by the curator Simon Kelly, a technical study, and many details of the panels accompanied the exhibition. 3 page fold-out included.
