  Manet Paints Monet

Manet Paints Monet
A Summer in Argenteuil

Willibald Sauerländer
Translated by David Dollenmayer

"As the distinguished German art historian Willibald Sauerländer recounts in Manet Paints Monet—a compact volume of sparkling insight and charm—the two artists and their families spent the summer of 1874 together in the riverside town of Argenteuil, just north of Paris, and there embarked on a storied adventure of artistic discovery. . . . This work is highly recommended."

  Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas
Drawings and Pastels

Christopher Lloyd

"Comprehensive but compact enough to read in bed, this superbly illustrated account encompasses the range of works on paper by the artist who was the 19th century's greatest draughtsman, equal to the Old Masters."

The Brilliant History of Color in Art

Victoria Finlay

"Beautifully illustrated with examples, mostly drawn from the collections of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and rich with lesser-known anecdotes from art history, the book succeeds perfectly in walking a fine line between the educational and the entertaining to deliver a wholly satisfying and stimulating perspective. It will please new and veteran artists, those interested in historical tidbits, and newcomers to the field."

Edited by Sarah Staniforth

"A calm, elegant, timely reminder that, although preventive conservation might depend on high-tech and expensive equipment, it can (and, more often does) rely on traditional skills."
