Description: The Art of Impressionism: Painting Technique and the Making of Modernity
No art, no matter how much the artist is devoted to observing and rendering an external ‘nature’, is unmediated. There is no such thing as ‘artless’ simplicity – the effects are always more or less contrived. There is, however, more or less talent, more or less integrity, in both painter and painting.
