French artist Claude Monet helped found the Impressionist movement through his experimentation with brushstrokes and his fascination with light. This biography introduces Monet's childhood, education, early caricatures, plein air painting, transformation of the landscape genre, acceptance and rejection from the Salon, travels throughout Europe, family life, and his gardens at Giverny that led to the famous water lily paintings. Sidebars, a glossary, an index, and a phonetics section accompany easy-to-read text and full-color reproductions of Monet's artwork, including Impression: Sunrise, Women in the Garden, The Beach at Trouville, and Meditation, Madam Monet on the Sofa.
