World of Art - Monet Book
Claude Monet (1840–1926) is one of the most admired and famous painters of all time, and the architect of Impressionism: a revolution that gave birth to modern art. His technique – painting out of doors, at the seashore or in the city streets – was as radically new as his subject matter, the landscapes and middle-class pastimes of a newly industrialized Paris. In this new introductory study, James H. Rubin – traces the development of Monet’s practice, from his early work as a caricaturist to the late paintings of waterlilies and his garden at Giverny.
