To many, impressionist painters are the best known. From Edgar Degas to Mary Cassatt, the impressionists created beautiful works that are found in museums all over the world--and even more prints of them are found in homes! This book profiles some of these big-name impressionists and shows their famous pieces. Guided by a friendly gallery worker, readers investigate what features one finds in impressionist works as well as the differences between a gallery and a museum. Activities throughout the book encourage readers to try their hand at impressionist techniques and ideas.
