James H. Rubin is professor of art history at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where he was department chair for fifteen years.

An original exploration of the movement that changed art for ever and made Monet, Renoir, Degas, Seurat, Cassatt and others into household names.

This generously illustrated book is organised by subject matter, looking at urban views and city life, interiors and still life, family and friends, and other common themes. In this way readers will have the tools to think critically and analytically about the movement, and a new understanding of the collective momentum that drove the impressionists to work with such originality and commitment to their own times.

Through close readings and comparisons of specific paintings, Rubin establishes links between the broad visual culture of the period and the Impressionist artists and within the artists’ own careers, the entire history of Impressionism is covered in an entirely new way.
