Quite recent publication this, from 2005, if that means anything in the art world. Matthias Arnold is a German art historian who specialises in the impressionist field. In under two hundred pages, this book is a quick read, yet has a quite insightful biography of the artist. To be quite honest, I've read other books in the past on this same subject, and my only reason for lifting this one off the library shelf is to just look at the pictures.
