Synopsis

The Impressionists by Rosie Dickins

The story of one of the major art movements of the 19th Century told for children ready to tackle longer and more complex stories. Today, Impressionist paintings draw huge crowds and sell for millions. But when they were first painted they caused public outrage. This is the fascinating story of those called The Impressionists. With reproductions of Impressionist paintings and details of the lives of the painters, and internet links to websites to find out more. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.
