In the forest of Fontainebleau : painters and photographers from Corot to Monet by Kimberly Jones ( Book )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Forest of Fontainebleau, located about 50 miles southeast of Paris, held a singular place in 19th-century art. Variously called "savage," "wild," "romantic," and "beautiful" by visitors, Fontainebleau's topography was viewed in many ways that reflected the sensibilities of the time. This is the first English-language publication to examine the significance of the region to the plein-air tradition in France. The book highlights four pivotal figures in the evolution of landscape painting: Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, The;odore Rousseau, Jean-François Millet, and Claude Monet. It integrates into this history the photographers who worked at Fontainebleau, including Eugène Cuvelier and Gustave Le Gray, and explores the role the forest played in the development of early photography. It also considers the reception of paintings of Fontainebleau at the Salons and the influence of Fontainebleau on the advent of Impressionism."

Liebermann - Corinth - Slevogt. Die Landschaften by Wallraf-Richartz-Museum--Fondation Corboud ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Liebermann's paintings of his garden on Wannsee, Corinth's Walchensee landscapes and Slevogt's Palatinate landscapes painted at Godramstein and Neukastel are world-famous. However, exotic or less well known works such as the paintings Slevogt did in Egypt and Corinth's early landscapes from his Munich days are included in this publication. The catalogue provides a concentrated focus on the landscape paintings of the three great German Impressionists. Accompanying essays elucidate their switch to landscape painting, addressing both their inspiring relationship with French Impressionism and their interest in the Barbizon School as well as the modern Dutch landscape tradition. In addition, an overview of German Impressionism and the development of German landscape painting in the 19th century introduce the subject matter in depth.
