If you saw the exhibit at the Denver Art Museum, this book is all the more enjoyable-
But given it has so many famous paintings, it is enjoyable to view and read about where ever you live-
Detailed, in depth descriptions of each painting makes it a wonderful learning tool

The book has an excellent range of paintings the exemplify the Impressionists period. I will enjoy it for years to come.
