GREAT FRENCH PAINTING IN THE HERMITAGE - Charles Sterling
The greatest masters of painting are represented at the Hermitage, and often with their very best works. Particularly notable is the absolutely breathtaking group of modern paintings. The present volume deals with the French schools, from the 16th century to today, concentrating on all the developments in this major tradition since the Renaissance. Included in the profusion of beautiful color plates and gravure black-and-whites are such painters as Poussin, Lorrain, Watteau, Chardin, Boucher, David, Ingres, Delacroix, the Barbizon painters, Manet, Degas, Gauguin, Renoir, and the other great Impressionists, and later painters like Bonnard, Matisse, and Picasso.
