Summary
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.
