Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Water lilies, reflecting ponds, a Japanese footbridge, and blankets of glorious flowers: Nothing evokes Claude Monetand#8217;s Impressionist paintings quite like images from his gardens at Giverny, about 50 miles northwest of Paris. Monet discovered a profound source of artistic renewal in these gardens, a motif that appears in hundreds of his works. In Claude Monetand#8217;s Gardens at Giverny, Dominique Lobsteinand#8217;s dynamic text introduces us to the many personalities that have strolled through these gardens and the role this setting played in Monetand#8217;s life, while Jean-Pierre Gilsonand#8217;s lush four-season photographs offer a tour through the literally thousands of flowersand#8212;daffodils, irises, poppies, tulips, and moreand#8212; winding pathways, arching trellises, cherry trees heavily laden with blossoms, and, of course, the iconic water garden. This book brings to life critical moments in Monetand#8217;s biography, presenting a vivid glimpse into the beloved artistand#8217;s personal experiences and creative universe.

Synopsis:

French painter Claude Monet (1840andndash;1926) is one of the most popular artists of all time. His paintings of water lilies, haystacks, cathedrals, and much more are well known and well loved. This book explores Monetandrsquo;s fascination, during the 1870s, with bridges. After moving to Argenteuil, on the outskirts of Paris, Monet was drawn to the footbridge near his house, and his painting of it, The Wooden Bridge, is a composition of startling modernity. Published to accompany a major exhibition, the book examines how Monet sought to establish himself as a leader of the avant-garde and how his paintings of bridges played a vital role in this context. Focusing on 12 major paintings, the book probes the impressionistsandrsquo; response to their ever-changing environment.
