Monet : The Ultimate Impressionist Paperback
by Sylvie Patin
Part of the New Horizons series
Claude Monet transformed light and colour into art.
In 1874 his "Impression, Sunrise" caused uproar among the critics and a revolution in painting.
His inventiveness was inexhaustible: with the "Haystacks", "Poplars", "Cathedrals" and, finally, the enchanting "Water-lilies of Givemy", Monet captured light in all its fleeting qualities.
At last, almost blind - "I fear the dark more than death"- he feverishly produced near-abstract landscapes of water and reflection, a vision of nature that paved the way for the art of our own day.
This book traces his career.
