The impressionists showed us a new way to look at the world with their graceful and fleeting visions of city streets and the countryside. But one aspect of their work has gone largely overlooked—the still-life painting. Here are some of the most memorable masterpieces in this genre from the most beloved artists of the movement, including Gustave Caillebotte, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Henri Fantin-Latour, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, and Vincent van Gogh. This charming book was produced in conjunction with The Phillips Collection, which organized the landmark traveling exhibition Impressionist Still Life.
