A Retrospective

edited by Charles F. Stuckey

The definitive volume about the life and work of Claude Monet

This is a special Beaux Arts reprint edition available at a discounted price in limited quantities only.

The world of Claude Monet--his rejection of the stultifying conventions of academic art, his revolutionary ideas about light and color, his reverence for nature--is best expressed in the hundreds of paintings that identify him as a master of the Impressionist movement.

At once ridiculed and admired for his "breakthrough" style of painting, Monet's influence on fellow artists, poets, philosophers, and scholars alike was part of his unique achievement.

Monet: A Retrospective weds more than 250 illustrations (132 in color) with fascinating text. Reviews, articles, interviews, and letters by important figures including Emile Zola, Georges Clemenceau, Marcel Proust and others reveal a personal and valuable documentary of this great artist and the beauty he saw in the world he loved to paint.
