Dieppe, a delightful port and resort on the Normandy coast, has been a source of inspiration to generations of British and French artists from Turner and Delacroix onwards. It is situated almost midway between London and Paris, and the town, more than any other in Europe, has been a location for the interaction of ideas between an extraordinary range of artists, writers and musicians. Dieppe has also been a place where British artists were exposed to the new developments in art taking place in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The book, which is also the Catalogue of the 1992 exhibition Rendez-vous a Dieppe, at Brightons Royal Pavilion Art Gallery and Museum, explores these themes and includes a colourful gallery of works by such artists as Cotman, Turner, Bonington- Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Gauguin- Beardsley, Conder, Blanche, Sickert and the Camden Town Group- William and Ben Nicholson and Braque.

These and writers such as Gide, Proust, Wilde and Symons are discussed by John Willett (on the entire period from Turner to Braque), Anna Gruetzner Robins (on the 1880s and 1890s in Dieppe) and Sophie Bowness (on the period when Braque and Nicholson were meeting at Varengeville nearby). A detailed chronology and bibliography complete the text.
