The Walter and Leonore Annenberg Collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, watercolors, and drawings constitutes one of the most remarkable groupings of avant-garde works of art from the mid-19th to the early 20th century ever given to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. A revised and expanded edition of the 1989 publication Masterpieces of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism: The Annenberg Collection, this handsome volume presents more than fifty masterworks by such luminaries as Manet, Degas, Morisot, Renoir, Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Picasso, and Matisse, accompanied by elucidating texts and a wealth of comparative illustrations.

Rishel is the Gisela and Dennis Alter Senior Curator of European Painting before 1900, and Senior Curator of the John G. Johnson Collection and the Rodin Museum at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Mark Rosenthal is an independent curator based in New York. Susan Alyson Stein is Curator and Asher Ethan Miller is Research Associate, Department of Nineteenth-Century, Modern, and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

"The care and attention by the authors and publishers is very evident throughout. The catalogue is both academic and highly enjoyable to look through at random. It certainly brings the Annenberg Collection to the notice of a new generation of art goers, collectors and connoisseurs. It is a very handsome and timely new edition."—Ian Welland, The Art Book
