An artist of pivotal importance to the generation of post-Impressionists from Seurat and Gauguin to Matisse and Picasso, Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (1824 - 1898) played a crucial role in the history of late-19th-century French art and the development of modernism. He was an artist of great range, originality, and idiosyncratic invention who executed mural complexes, compelling easel paintings, and numerous works on paper. These two companion volumesa critical study of the artist's life and art, and a catalogue raisonné of his paintingsintroduce many of Puvis’s works for the first time, assess his contribution, and restore him to the pantheon of modern masters.
Volume I situates Puvis and his work in his time. With a wealth of new documentation, it addresses the theories, forces, and events that impinged on his art. Volume II is a complete compendium of Puvis's easel paintings and mural cycles for civic buildings throughout France as well as for the Boston Public Library.

It is 2 volume set, beautifully packaged in a glossy box. But the first volume is supposed to be an overview of the artist, and of its nearly 300 pages, 130 are the appendix and notes. 90% is just text and a few color images. Not much. The 2nd volume is the catalog raisonne of most of his works and this was mostly black and white with page after page of text. I can go on fliker dot com and see people's vacation pics from Europe to see what is included in these 2 books. The few color images are photos of various walls/ apses that have Chavannes' paintings on them. I am very disappointed. Apparently only a serious scholar would want or need an art book that has very little art in color and is mostly scholarly research.
