Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Water lilies, reflecting ponds, a Japanese footbridge, and blankets of glorious flowers: Nothing evokes Claude Monets 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 Monets Gardens at Giverny, Dominique Lobsteins dynamic text introduces us to the many personalities that have strolled through these gardens and the role this setting played in Monets life, while Jean-Pierre Gilsons lush four-season photographs offer a tour through the literally thousands of flowers—daffodils, irises, poppies, tulips, and more— 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 Monets biography, presenting a vivid glimpse into the beloved artists personal experiences and creative universe.
