Über diesen Titel


The warm glow of another era illuminates New York city in this nostalgic tour around the turn-of-the-century metropolis during the heyday of Impressionism. This is another title in the series that includes "Impressionist London"by Eric Shanes. Organised geographically - with chapters on Fifth Avenue and Broadway, Lower Manhattan, Central Park, the waterfront and bridges, the outer boroughs, and so on "Impressionist New York" chronicles the intersection of the city's history with art history. Numerous sidebars by contemporary writer's such as Henry James and Frederick Law Olmstead show the pleasures and perils of metropolitan life. This book will appeal to admirers of Impressionism who will be interested to see how Impressionism spread to America. It will also be welcome to all New York visitors, residents, and exiles yearning to recapture the city's romantic past. The 100 colour illustrations include paintings by such popular Impressionists as William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, and Maurice Prendergast, as well as striking but less-known work by Colin Campbell Cooper and the Canadian David Milne and others.


The turn of the century in America experienced both the peak of the aesthetics of impressionism and widespread growth in its greatest city--New York. Like the French impressionists in Paris, many American impressionists took to the streets, using the realities of urban life as the subject of their work. An authority on American impressionism, Dr. William H. Gerdts provides a thorough chronicle of this work and the time in which it was painted--one of public consciousness and celebration. The paintings in the book are visions of urban optimism, focusing on buildings, parks, and street scenes. Because many of the buildings in these paintings are no longer standing, this work is a documentary of a time long gone. The book balances text, image, and white space nicely. Throughout the text, sidebars of quotes by the artists and their literary contemporaries offer commentary on life in the city, putting the work in context.
