  2. 4 out of 5


    I was surprsied at just how much I enjoyed reading and looking through this book. I tend to think of impressionists as being the Monet, pastel ponds and lily-pads types of paintings, but some of these works were very moving.

    Outstanding to me were Brewer, Burton, Ericson, Fournier, Koehler, and Norstad. Their works were stong, moving, vibrant and full of the passion of the artist(s).

    That each of these artists had ties to Minnesota (my home state) made it all the more interesting. I know many of the areas that they painted.

    A rich book, well worth reading.
