This beautifully illustrated and comprehensive book on Impressionism accompanied the exhibition Inspiring Impressionism | Daubigny, Monet, Van Gogh on display at the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh.
Charles François Daubigny (1817-1878) was one of the most important French landscape painters of the nineteenth century.
This book reassesses his work and examines his importance for the Impressionists, as well as Van Gogh. Daubigny helped to shape Impressionism through his working practice: routinely painting outdoors, often from his studio boat; exploring new subjects and unexpected viewpoints; and developing a radically ‘unfinished’ style and a brighter palette.
