One of the great innovations of the Impressionists was their radical use of colour: their application of strokes of complementary or contrasting hues captured the shifting effects of light and foregrounded the nature of vision. The development of Impressionism and its poetics of resistance are traced in Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Muse dOrsay, which brings together celebrated works from Impressionist masters. Using colour as the lens through which to magnify the movements intricacies, this catalogue sweeps us from Manets rich blacks, through green and blue landscapes of Monet and Czanne, to the sensuous pinks of Renoir. In the process of this journey, scientific discoveries emerge and definitions of modernity are expanded, illuminating these artists radical tendencies to disavow preconceptions of art.
