The first book to focus on Claude Monet's sojourns to the southern coasts of France and Italy, Monet and the Mediterranean unites over one hundred paintings created in the course of three major trips, from 1883 to 1908. Many of these works have never before been reproduced in color or even publicly shown, for they have been gathered together by Joachim Pissarro from the collections of not only major museums but of private individuals worldwide. Monet and the Mediterranean features over one hundred color plates, with introductory commentaries for each series or grouping of paintings. Produced in association with the Kimbell Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas, this book accompanies the first major exhibition of Monet's Mediterranean paintings.

Joachim Pissarro, the great-grandson of Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro, is Curator of European and Contemporary Art at the Yale University Art Gallery. He has published several books in the United States, including Monet's Cathedral: Rouen, 1892-1894.Review:
"The success of Monet and the Mediterranean suits Monet's own, because it is comparably multifaceted: as biography, it is insightful; as history, it is innovative; as critical interpretation, it is both poetic and sound.
In Pissarrro's text, Monet's 'Southern' paintings emerge as if seen for the first time: never before have they been related so evocatively to the prevailing cultural myths of the Mediterranean . . . . "--Richard Shiff, author of Cézanne and the End of Impressionism
"This is Joachim Pissarro's greatest gift: a deep love for painting which he communicates in an especially thoughtful and subtle way. At once a scrupulous historian, an imaginative theorest, and an incisive critic, Mr. Pissarro is committed to the highest standards of intellectual as well as aesthetic engagement with our inherited legacy of works of art. This is no merely custodial relation to the past, however, for through his work he means to transform how we will engage with the vital issues of our own culture today."--Steven Z. Levine, author of Monet, Narcissus, and Self-Reflection
