The Impressionists--Monet, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, Pissarro, and Renoir--are probably the most popular of all artistic schools. With imagination and insight, the author brings Impressionism into focus by showing it through the eyes of the artists and their contemporaries, using letters, critical reviews and reminiscences of the people who were part of the story. As we see in Bernard Denvir's compelling survey, the Impressionists had new ways of painting, but they also had a new world to paint: a world of stream tricycles, emergent photography, and modern ideas about perception.

During the first two decades of the 20th century, many artists famously experimented with nonrepresentational expression. Taking cues from ideas hinted as by artists such as El Greco, Goya, Van Gogh, and Munch, Expressionists sought to transform reality rather than depict it in any sort of literal fashion. Egon Schiele, Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, and Wassily Kandinsky are among Expressionism’s most famous exponents. Featured artists include: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Max Pechstein, Otto Mueller, Emil Nolde, Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, August Macke, Paul Klee, Alexej Jawlensky, Gabriele Münter, Marianne von Werefkin, Heinrich Campendonk, Lyonel Feininger, Arnold Schönberg, Oskar Kokoschka, Egon Schiele, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Christian Rohlfs, Ludwig Meidner, Lovis Corinth, Ernst Barlach, Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, and George Grosz.
Название: The Biblical Rembrandt: Human Painter in a Landscape of Faith

The Biblical Rembrandt presents the human Rembrandt in the context of his faith. That faith can be studied only by an intense look at this paintings, etchings, and drawings depicting biblical persons, scenes, and moments. About Rembrandt's life, we know very little that is certain, but he has left us abundant testimony of his sensitive reading of the Bible. Written from the perspective of a biblical specialist who has pored over Rembrandt's testimony, Durham writes not for the art historian, but for those who love the Bible, for those who love Rembrandt, and for those who want to know more about the meeting of this Dutchman and his biblical text. Durham confesses he has lived with the (changing) canon of Rembrandt's works for more than forty years, with the biblical texts he loved open before me. This book is the summary of that experience. Not every work of Rembrandt based on the Bible is discussed: that would have required commentary on more than 900 works. Durham has selected his favorites, the ones that seem to him most reflective of Rembrandt's faith, about 130 works in all. Each of these paintings, etchings, and drawings is reproduced in the context in which it is described, the paintings in full color. Where important details are difficult to see, they are isolated, and enlarged as necessary. In his biblical works Rembrandt invites us to read the Bible just as he read it, in personal terms: flawed, as he was; reaching, as he did; and experiencing the Bible as a book about ourselves.
