Manet and the French Impressionists
Grant Richards, London 1910 - Quarto. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Cloth a little rubbed. Half-tone frontispiece and 31 engravings, 4 etchings (by Manet, Renoir and Morisot), 4 wood engravings. First UK edition, first impression of the first work to describe the development of Impressionism, with a chapter on each of the major painters and numerous illustrations. The author, Theodore Duret (1838–1927), was one of the earliest and most vocal supporters of the movement. He first met Manet in 1865 and the two became good friends, with the artist painting the connoisseur three times. During the 1870s Duret began writing articles championing the new movement, and this was his most important work. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
