Claude Monet (1840-1926) was both the most typical and the most individual painter associated with the Impressionist movement. His long life and extraordinary work were dedicated to a pictorial exploration of the sensations which reality, and in particular landscape, offer the human eye.
Monet s poplars, grain stacks, Rouen Cathedral, and waterlily paintings - among the most beloved works of the Impressionist period - were created long before the currents of the contemporary avant-garde and had an inestimable influence on the development of modern art. This book traces the life s work of one of art history s most beloved painters.
