    This was a lovely book It shows the works of Monet with beautifully written text to tell us about his life and his state of mind when he created each work It tells the story of his life in a simple to understand way and the art shown is beautiful I saw some of his works in person at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC and I was blown away by the beauty of the huge paintings that I saw It s so nice to learn about the man behind the art.

    This book provided a fine introduction into the life and work of Claude Monet But that s just it, it was only an introduction While I enjoyed the author s insights into several of Monet s major works, I d hoped that he d focus on the personal life of the artist What s , the little the author does include makes Monet, the man who possessed such enthusiasm for color and the peaceful qualities of nature, seem rather dull.

    this book is the best art book i ve ever read it really kickstarted an interest in reading some nonfiction classic novels plays AKA Sartre for me not only does this biography go through Monet s life, it also shows how his paintings adapted over time by showing them chronologically it explains the artistic themes behind his work, why it was shunned when it was, how he became successful, etc while making the art terms understandable and not a chore to read it was super interesting and i actually f [...]

    Monet is my favourite painter so it was natural for me to love this book album since the first page.The main reason i liked it so much was that we can understand why he painted like this, why he used these formats, these colours, these themes.Now i just like even Monet sorry for the english mistakes

    I have been on a kick of books on artists lately and Monet is one of the better ones I ve read It gives some biography of his life and plenty of scholarly analysis of his work Monet is easy even for a layperson to appreciate, but this book will help you see the struggles he faced in his life, why his artwork is groundbreaking, and how to better understand and appreciate the various subjects of his works The tone of the book is scholarly, but I found it to be pretty easy to read Monet went throug [...]

    A beautifully presented book Clearly written to provide an insight into the life of Monet and some understanding of his development of impressionist art The pictures of his paintings are top quality too As it happened, once I finished this book I found out that there was a exhibition at the National Gallery, London Inventing Impressionism 4 March 31 May 2015 The exhibition showcases the influence of Paul Durand Ruel on the Impressionism movement and includes several Monets It was wonderful to ha [...]

    I would give this 4 stars if I was only rating the quality of the pictures and attention to details, but I was interested in knowing the historic context behind Monet s impressionism Facts and stories were described too shallow, I got a good overview but the author never analysed or presented Monet s history in depth But I guess for a 100 page book it was as good as it could be after all
