Worthy of special mention among them are Portrait of the Actress Jeanne Samary and Girl with a Fan by Auguste Renoir, Haystack at Giverny and Poppy Field by Claude Monet, Village on the Seine (Villeneuve-la-Garenne) and River Banks at Sainl-Mammes by Alfred Sisley, Boulevard Montmartre in Paris by Camille Pissarro, the paintings Girl at the Piano, Still Life with Curtain and Mont Sainte-Victoire by Paul Cezanne, Woman Holding a Fruit by Paul Gauguin and Lilac Bush by Vincent van Gogh, numerous works by Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, as well as paintings by Pierre Bormard, Albert Marquet, Maurice Vlaminck, Maurice Denis, Andre Derain and Kees van Dongen. The collection of French painting of the late 19th and early 20th centuries owned by the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg justly ranks among the best in the world. The canvases represented in it were assembled, with some exclusions, by the Moscow art collectors Sergei Shchukin and Ivan Morozov. Before 1948 the collections had been in the State Museum of New Western Art in Moscow and after its closing they were divided between the State Hermitage and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow. In the late 1950s the masterpieces kept in the two collections began to be displayed in the rooms of the museums. The two collections, in St Petersburg and Moscow, equally superb in terms of quality, make up together a breath-taking panorama of French painting of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The collection of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists in the Hermitage owes much of its significance to its amazing number of supreme examples of European painting.

|The Judgment of Paris: The Revolutionary Decade That Gave the World Impressionism Walker & Company King R. |
The struggle betwee\ n Meisso\ nier a\ nd Ma\ net to see their pai\ nti\ ngs achieve pride of place at the Salo\ n was \ not just about artistic competitive\ ness, it was about how to see the world. Full of fa\ ntastic tidbits of i\ nformatio\ n (such as the use of carrier pigeo\ ns a\ nd hot-air balloo\ ns duri\ ng the siege of Paris), a\ nd a colourful cast of characters that i\ ncludes Baudelaire, Courbet, a\ nd Zola, with walk-o\ n parts for Mo\ net, Re\ noir, Degas, a\ nd Ceza\ n\ ne, The Judgme\ nt of Paris casts \ new light o\ n the birth of Impressio\ nism a\ nd takes us to the heart of a time i\ n which the moder\ n Fre\ nch ide\ ntity was bei\ ng forged. If there were two me\ n who were absolutely ce\ ntral to artistic life i\ n Fra\ nce i\ n the seco\ nd half of the \ ni\ netee\ nth ce\ ntury, they were Edouard Ma\ net a\ nd Er\ nest Meisso\ nier. While the former has bee\ n labelled the Father of Impressio\ nism a\ nd is today a household \ name, the latter has su\ nk i\ nto obscurity. It is difficult \ now to believe that i\ n 1864, whe\ n this story begi\ ns, it was Meisso\ nier who was co\ nsidered the greatest Fre\ nch artist alive a\ nd who received astro\ nomical sums for his work, while Ma\ net was derided for his messy pai\ nti\ ngs of ordi\ nary people a\ nd had great difficulty getti\ ng a\ ny of his work accepted at the all-importa\ nt a\ n\ nual Paris Salo\ n. Ma\ net a\ nd Meisso\ nier were the Mozart a\ nd Salieri of their day, o\ ne a da\ ngerous challe\ nge to the establishme\ nt, the other beloved by rulers a\ nd the public alike for his pai\ nstaki\ ngly meticulous oil pai\ nti\ ngs of historical subjects. Out of the fasci\ nati\ ng story of their parallel careers, Ross Ki\ ng creates a le\ ns through which to view the political te\ nsio\ ns that dogged Louis-\ napoleo\ n duri\ ng the Seco\ nd Empire, his ig\ nomi\ nious dow\ nfall, a\ nd the bloody Paris Commu\ ne of 1871. At the same time, Ki\ ng pai\ nts a wo\ nderfully detailed a\ nd vivid portrait of life i\ n a\ n era of radical social cha\ nge: o\ n the streets of Paris, at the \ new seaside resorts of Boulog\ ne a\ nd Trouville, a\ nd at the race courses a\ nd pic\ nic spots where the \ new bourgeoisie relaxed. Whe\ n Ma\ net pai\ nted Dejeu\ ner sur lherbe or Olympia, he shocked \ not o\ nly with his casual brushstrokes (described by some as applied by a floor mop) but with his subject matter: top-hatted white-collar workers (a\ nd their mistresses) were \ not co\ nsidered suitable subjects for Art. Ross Ki\ ng shows how, be\ nig\ n as they might seem today, these pai\ nti\ ngs cha\ nged the course of history.
