Description
Nineteenth-century French and English paintings, drawings, and oil sketches -- works by such great artists as Courbet, Constable, Delacroix, Gericault, Corot, Rousseau, Couture, and Daubigny -- are presented in this interesting book, a documentation of some of the holdings of Karen B. Cohen, a noted New York collector. Because they have been held for so long in private hands, most of the works in this collection are little known, and many are published here for the first time.

Colta Ives and Elizabeth E. Barker provide documentation and commentary for each work, placing it within the context of each artist's development and connecting it to contemporary artistic trends and innovations. They discuss how in each instance the artist is eager to present the natural world in as vivid a way as possible, and how the artists' fervent treatment of nature and human life, frequently in a fluid, cursory style, was intended to elicit a heightened response from the viewer. The ancient world was left behind for the immediacy of the present: nearly all these artists were alternately damned and praised for their modernity.
