NEW YORK, NY.- Impressionists on the Water, coinciding with a major exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum, traces the history of light-infused water scenes within the social context of the latter nineteenth century. Water, boats, and all things nautical provided natural fodder for Impressionists, many of whom were sailors and yachtsman themselves—Pissarro had sailed the Atlantic several times, Bazille was as much a champion rower as a painter, though Manet, unfortunately failed twice in his goal to become a naval officer.

This catalogue reveals intriguing details behind key paintings from this period and includes a chronology of Gustave Caillebotte’s boating life, who was one of the movement’s forerunners and most proactive yachtsman. Through essays by noted art historians, the book illuminates historical and cultural aspects of the nautical themes embraced by the Impressionists, including their connections to contemporary life such as the literature of Zola and Maupassant, leisure, and technology.

Impressionists on the Water is a collection of works focused on rowing, yachting, and sailing, on rivers and on sea, while highlighting the boatyards, clubs, and many regattas frequented by the artists. A brilliant synthesis of boating and aesthetics, this book will be cherished by coastal admirers, scholars, and connoisseurs of one of the most beloved periods in art history.

Phillip Dennis Cate, former director of the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum in New Jersey, is a specialist in nineteenth-century French art. Daniel Charles is a noted historian of innovation and technology, with a particular expertise in maritime history. Christopher Lloyd, a specialist in the art of the Italian Renaissance, French Impressionism, and British painting, was a curator in the Department of Western Art at the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford University for twenty years before becoming Surveyor of the Queen’s Pictures from 1988–2005.
