The Grove Dictionary of Art, the award-winning 34-volume set that was launched to critical acclaim in 1996, represents the knowledge of more than 6,800 of the world's leading scholars. It is now the preeminent reference resource for the visual arts. The new GroveART series makes this comprehensive and authoritative art scholarship accessible and affordable to all audiences for the first time. Complete with a multipage color plate section as well as extensive black and white images throughout, each volume in the series will focus on one particularly popular area or period of art history. Broad enough to appeal to the general reader, but thorough enough for the art historian, each book will reflect the depth and excellence of coverage that brought such acclaim to The Grove Dictionary of Art.

The late 19th century in France is indisputably the most popular period in the history of Western Art. This book gathers together more than 300 in-depth biographies of artists from this ground-breaking era. It highlights the work of painters who brought about the artistic revolutions of Realism, Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism -- from Millet to Courbet, to household names such as Monet, Manet, and Renoir, as well as Cezanne and Gaugin. Sculptors and graphic artists, among them Rodin and Toulouse-Lautrec, are also included.
