"Great French Paintings
From the Clark"
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
