"Great French Paintings From the Clark"

Book Review

Any time an art book arrives from Skira|Rizzoli, one opens it with great anticipation because the consistent fabulous quality is something to behold. The same can be said of "Great French Paintings from the Clark" by James A. Ganz and Richard B. Bretell ($45.00, 240 pages).

Page after page of masterpieces Barbizon through Impressionism adorn the pages of this terrific tome.  In all, there are  131 color illustrations of works by Monet, Pissarro, Sisley, Morisot, Manet, Degas and Renoir. There are earlier works by Millet and Corot and academic paintings.

A debt is owed to the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute of Williamstown, Massachusetts for making this master work available to the general public. HIGHLY NOTABLE.
