Claude Monet's tranquil water-lily paintings and rural landscape scenes are among some of the most treasured artworks of the 19th and 20th centuries. Hailed as the ''Prince of Impressionism'' for his pioneering role in the French artistic movement, Monet is widely recognized for his free brushstroke and experimentation with color and natural light.
In this beautifully illustrated book, Ann Sumner explores the life of this prodigious painter and the subjects that obsessed him: the cliffs of the Normandy coastline, the palazzos of Venice, the railway stations of Paris, the great edifice of Rouen Cathedral, and his beloved garden at Giverny.
Showcasing a selection of his best-loved and lesser-known paintings alongside fascinating biographic detail, this guide serves as a perfect introduction to Monet and the evolution of his iconic style.
