"Claude Monet (1840-1926) was one of the first artists to move his studio out into the open, creating works which continue to fascinate us today as much as they did his contemporaries. One of the founding fathers of Impressionist art, Monet's art consistently reflects the artist's profound love of nature. Many of his paintings were directly inspired by the gardens that played such an important role in his life - those at his two homes in Argenteuil, followed by his garden in Vetheuil. Yet the most famous of Monet's gardens was the expansive park in Giverny, which inspired his masterful handling of light and color for more than three decades and provided motifs for hundreds of individual paintings and series that remain so very popular today - among them the masterpieces of his Water-Lilies series. This volume of full-page color plates presents landscapes, still lifes, and portraits of people in gardens from nearly all of Monet's creative periods - from his early Impressionist paintings of the 1870s to the monumental Grandes Decorations."--BOOK JACKET.
