Description

A selection of masterpieces from one of the most prestigious private collections in the world.

One of the most important private art collections in the world, the Emil Bührle Collection occupies a prominent place in the museum-quality group of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works that forms its core and which in this volume is represented by masterpieces by Manet, Degas, Renoir, Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh and others.

The works, published in colour and accompanied by commentaries by authoritative art historians, illustrate the principles according to which Bührle built his extraordinary collection: on the one hand, the desire to relate modern art with the highest results of European painting in previous centuries – of which the masterpieces by Canaletto, Strozzi, Delacroix and Corot are the spokesmen – on the other hand, the choice to document in an exhaustive way the path of the protagonists of modern art, such as Manet, Degas, Van Gogh and Cézanne, whose phases of artistic production is proposed a partial review.

Exemplary in this sense is the presence of works by Claude Monet: from the landscape painteden plein air Champ de coquelicots près de Vétheuil (1879 circa) to the revolution of Le Bassin aux nymphéas, reflets verts (1920-1926), the catalogue emphasises Monet’s importance not only as a reference figure for the Impressionist movement, but also as a source of inspiration for later generations of artists.
