Book Description

25 April 2013
Master of the sublime: The essential Impressionist No other artist, apart from J.M.W. Turner, tried as hard as Claude Monet (1840-1926) to capture light itself on canvas. Of all the Impressionists, it was the man Cezanne called "only an eye, but my God what an eye!" who stayed true to the principle of absolute fidelity to the visual sensation, painting directly from the object. It could be said that Monet reinvented the possibilities of color. Whether it was through his early interest in Japanese prints, his time as a conscript in the dazzling light of Algeria, or his personal acquaintance with the major painters of the late 19th century, the work Monet produced throughout his long life would change forever the way we perceive both the natural world and its attendant phenomena. The high point of his explorations was the late series of waterlilies, painted in his own garden at Giverny, which, in their approach toward almost total formlessness, are really the origin of abstract art. This biography does full justice to this most remarkable and profoundly influential artist, and offers numerous reproductions and archive photos alongside a detailed and insightful commentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monet in Miniature but Worth Every Penny 27 Jun 2014
By OkieScribe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a much smaller-format reprint of the first volume of a much larger (and more expensive) 1996 edition. Consequently, the size of the illustrations is significantly reduced and the printed text is miniscule. Nevertheless, this is still a beautiful and quite affordable edition and a must-have for Monet fans.

The color plates are copious and expertly reproduced. The volume is also a painstakingly researched biography, thereby doubling its value. I recommend it highly with the caveat about the book's size. At only 8 x 6 inches, it might have given me pause before I purchased it, but as it is, I'm glad I didn't hesitate. Highly recommended.

Can't have too many Monet books, especially those in perfect condition and at reasonable prices, as this book was.
