Catalogue from the exhibition at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, February to May 1999. The French artists Claude Monet and Frederic Bazille worked together for seven years - until the latter was killed in the Franco-Prussian War - to develop the style of painting which became known as Impressionism. This is a study of that fruitful collaboration and the works that resulted from it. Published to accompany a 1999 exhibition at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia, the book assesses an association dominated by Monet's overpowering personality and talent and nurtured by Bazille's selfless generosity. It also discusses the significance of the artist's studio at a time when French painters were blazing new trails by painting outdoors, and presents discoveries made during technical analysis of almost identical paintings by Monet and Bazille of the beach at Sainte-Adresse.
