Review

"This is the work on Monet; anything published before or after it will seem minor in comparison [...]. It is the only readily available publication that gives a complete record of Monet's work - in other words, it is definitive." -The Good Book Guide, London "This is the work on Monet; anything published before or after it will seem minor in comparison [...].

About the Author

Daniel Wildenstein (1917-2001) was an art historian and member of the Academie des Beaux-Arts (Paris). From 1939 onwards, he was Director of the Wildenstein Galleries of New York, London and Tokyo. He edited several international journals, e.g. the magazine Arts from 1956-1962 and the Gazette des Beaux-Arts after 1963. He co-founded the Fondation Wildenstein in 1970 (it was renamed the WildensteinInstitute in 1984), and was a prime mover in many exhibitions of international repute. Daniel Wildenstein also edited the catalogues raisonnes of various 18th, 19th and 20th century artists. He was a world authority on Impressionism, and published catalogues of the works of Gauguin, Manet and Monet.

This is a comprehensive overview of Monet's work and I cant argue with the review saying it's definitive, for such a large book it's also great value - as Taschen publications usually are. It has hundreds of prints from the full extents of a very long career and a lot a biographical text to back them up.
I dont know why I've taken so long to buy a book about this absolute master of light but I'm very glad I started with this one and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in his work.

Probably the most exceptional book I have ever bought.

I have other books on Monet, but this contains an easily accessible narrative of the painters life, together with many of his paintings set out in chronological order. I particularly like the use of historical photographs with which to identify and compare Monet's final paintings.

Cons - its a heavy book, too heavy to hold and read, but still delightful.

Excellent price and delivery through Amazon.

I received this book from Amazon today, and as I write this I'm curled up reading it (well, maybe not quite 'curled up' cos it's a very heavy volume to balance on my knees!!). Seriously, though, I thought I had read almost all that had been published in English and French on my favourite Impressionist painter, and I've visited Giverny several times over the years. But I'm still gaining fresh insights from this very authoritative text, and the illustrations are a true delight. It's a truly beautiful book at an amazing price. Highly recommended!!
