****The Impressionists' Paris
by Ellen Williams
Reviewed March 21, 2004.
The Little Bookroom, New York, 1997. 100 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (914.436 WIL).
This is a lovely little book. It presents three walking tours
of places in Paris that were important to the Impressionists and showed
up in their paintings. I would dearly love to take these walking
tours, but getting to read about them in the comfort of my home was almost
as good. The book includes reproductions of some paintings as well
as photos or postcards of how the spots look today. The text tells
about the lives of the Impressionists and why these places were important.
It’s small and would be easy to carry in a pocket around Paris.
Take a cozy walk in Paris through the pages of this book!
