About This Book

This volume features over 140 works from the Musée d'Orsay, Paris. The works featured in this book represent the shift towards modernity that began in the mid-19th century, a period of great change and scientific progress, and a clash between the traditional and the modern. This led to the development of new subject matter, techniques and styles. Dreams and Reality showcases seminal pieces from important artists including Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, édouard Manet, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, among many others. With essays written by Caroline Matthieu, chief curator of the Musée d'Orsay, and detailed analyses on each work by experts, this book provides great insight into the dreams pursued and cherished by artists as well as the realities and challenges they were faced with during this period of evolving artistic expression.
