About this title


Provides an in-depth look at the French Impressionist's life and work, analyzing his paintings and examining the evolution of his style

From Library Journal:

Australian scholar Spate (fine arts, Univ. of Sydney) provides a careful study of almost 3000 surviving letters of Claude Monet, infusing this biography with a critical assessment of his paintings. The artist's dedication to plein-air painting is ably documented. We see him progress from realism to light to the abstraction of light in his work as Paris and its surrounding suburbs are transformed by politics, war, and the industrial age. There are 300 illustrations, with 135 in color, and several detailed pages showing water lilies bleed to the edge of the page. The bibliography is extensive and the index entry, "Monet, Oscar Claude," contains a chronology as well as major descriptive subheadings, such as "Attitudes and Tenants," "Garden," and "Light," making this a desirable reference source. The level of discussion is attuned to the specialist and advanced student of Impressionist art. Overall, an achievement worth noting.
