Monet at Giverny
Claude Monet spent the last 43 years of his long life at Giverny creating the beautiful gardens: the most famous in France and one of the most visited in the world. Garden historian and designer Caroline Holmes explores Monet's twin passions -painting and plants - and looks at his intelligent approach to creating a personal paradise of lily ponds and kaleidoscopic colour. This beautiful book shows the artist as a consummate plantsman who composed his gardens with an Impressionist's care for colour and form, later to be reinterpreted into paintings of beautiful abstraction. Drawing upon Monet's own voice and those of his contemporaries and offering a wealth of horticultural detail, this book provides fascinating insight into his obsessional love of gardening and painting.

Monet at GivernyUser Review - Book Verdict
British garden historian and designer Holmes (Victorian Gardens) presents an alternate perspective of Impressionist Claude Monet that goes beyond a mere discussion of his artwork. For the final 43 years of his life, Monet lived and painted at Giverny in northwestern France, where he personally worked on the gardens that inspired his art. He was an avid and experimental gardener and created a colorful palette from the plants and flowers he planted. Holmes discusses Monet's family life, garden plantings, and floral inspirations. This book cannot be categorized as a study of his art, a biography, or a horticultural book; it is truly interdisciplinary, drawing from all three areas. Peppered throughout are black-and-white photographs taken during Monet's life at Giverny, contemporary color photographs of the gardens and selections of his art that best represent what he experienced while at Giverny. Previously published in the UK in 2001. Verdict A visually pleasing book on Monet and his gardens that will appeal to both gardeners and art enthusiasts alike.â€”Sandy Knowles, Larchmont P.L., Norfolk, VA
