Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carla Rachman's clear and engaging account offers an accessible introduction to Monet's life and art, analysing the works themselves and also the social basis for the shifts in taste and the changing political and economic forces within Monet's lifetime. The artist's personal life and his relations with dealers, patrons, critics and institutions are seen as formative influences on his work. The book traces critical reaction to Monet's work from the early years, which were marked by a clash with conventional artistic values, to the present, when Monet's vision of the world has gained popularity with the public at large.

Synopsis:

Providing an account of the life and work of French impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926), this text sets his achievement within the context of the changing artistic, political and social circumstances of France in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
