Turner to Cézanne: Masterpieces from the Davies Collection follows British collectors Gwendoline and Margaret Davies and their impressive, vast acquisitions of Realist, Impressionist, and Post-Impressionist art. This unique book, which was published to coincide with a major traveling exhibition, offers insight into the development of art theory and practice at this highly pivotal moment in art history. By contextualizing each movement within its larger temporal framework, readers are offered the unique experience of viewing the artistic progression toward modernism in a linear format. The rich development of this artistic epoch can at last be admired in the form of one cohesive tome, thanks to the remarkable Davies Collection.
