****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!
