Product Description
Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musee d'Orsay Coloring Book
Did you know that before the Impressionists created their new style of painting, French artists mainly painted pictures about historical events or made portraits of kings and queens and noblemen? Around the 1870s a number of artists began to try new ways of painting and new subjects, too. Using visible brushstrokes (something not done before) they painted hillsides, boats on the river, towns, and parks, and when they painted people, it was the people they encountered in their daily lives—town merchants, workers in the fields, family members. Both color and light were very important to the Impressionists. They tried to capture the way light appeared in a single moment—on water, on a tree, on a house—and how that changed the way colors appeared. One art critic, who didn’t like this new style, dismissed a painting as being just an “impression,” and that is how they got their name!

You’ll find 22 Impressionist paintings in this coloring book. They are shown as small pictures on the inside front and back covers. When you color in the line drawings, you might want to copy their colors, or you might decide to use your own. We’ve left the last page of this book blank so that you can draw and color a picture of your own. How will you capture an impression of your world? Can you use color in new ways?
