As he developed his technique, his paintings took on the quality of pure luminescence, paving the way for the Impressionist era to come. Overflowing with images, this book offers full-page spreads of masterpieces as well as highlights of smaller details, which allow every aspect of the artist's technique and oeuvre to be appreciated. Chronologically arranged, the book covers important biographical and historic events that reflect the latest scholarship. Additional information includes a list of works, timeline and suggestions for further reading.
