4to, XI plus complex prefaces and multiple following plates 293pp. Hardcover with light grey cloth boards and embossed silver title with d/w illustrated by a Guillaumin painting both in excellent condition , now protected by clear archival covering, text and paintings reproduced on quality glossy paper in pristine condition. This French painter (1841-1927) was an impressionist landscape artist and lithographer, well connected in the French Impressionist school and good friend and associate of the much better known Cezanne and Pisarro and while he never achieved the stature of his two friends, his influence on their work was significant. Little known by the normal modern art officianado, both Christopher and Alice Gray have produced a book of great depth and poise with magnificent colour and b/w art photography throughout. . Certainly an uncommon if not rare book about a little studied French Impressionist.
