The radiant colours and brilliant composition of Monet's floral paintings have inspired artists, gardeners, designers, as well as life-style gurus.
This delightful book features dazzling reproductions of Monet's paintings, accompanied by photographs of the Giverny gardens from the artist's time and today, insights into the artist's domestic world, examples of his horticultural genius, and even recipes from his kitchen.
Readers will learn what daily life was like in the artist's home and find inspiration on how to create their own beautiful gardens.
The book also includes reproductions from famous American Impressionists in the collection of the Musee d'art americain, a living tribute to Monet.
