Travelling in the Footsteps of the Impressionists

Category Historical Fiction

Below is a wonderful list of the best historical fiction novels for fans of impressonism and lovers of books!

Lie on your bed or on your favorite couch & go back in time to 19th century Paris. These wonderful novels will transport you to the famous Montmartre village where painters, poets, musicians, dancers, writers and bohemians gathered in smoke-filled cafes and sipping absinthe in bars.

You will meet these young emerging artists who were still unknown and struggling to make ends meet.

You will read the stories about Degas, Monet, Renoir, Morisot, Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec, Valadon and her son Utrillo, Cassatt and many more. They all shared ideas and experimented with new painting styles. Together they started new art movements & rocked the traditional art world of Paris to smithereens!

Share with me your best historical fiction novels about the 19th century artists that do not appear on my list!

I look forward to hearing from you.
