Wonderful partner to the museum show

I went to see the exhibit this book was written to accompany at the Cleveland Museum of Art and was just blown away by the sheer size of it. The book gives background and quite a bit of detail about the history of each painting and the life of Monet.  The paintings are wonderfully reproduced. ...

schema:reviewBody""A new look at the world's most beloved Impressionist, Monet in Normandy examines some of the artist's most important paintings - including the famed Giverny canvases as well as the iconic haystacks and Rouen Cathedral series. This catalogue, which accompanies a major traveling exhibition, explores for the first time Monet's enduring ties to the region of Normandy. It was here that Monet began his painting career, and it was here that he met his first great mentor, Eugene Boudin. Monet developed a deep affection for the area, which was becoming the first international tourist destination of the modern age. He would return time after time to depict its dramatic coastline, picturesque villages, and seaside resorts." "Featuring more than sixty masterworks, Monet in Normandy marks one of the largest Impressionist exhibitions to travel the country. Included are many paintings from major museums and private collections across the United States, Europe, and Japan. Richard Brettell contributes three essays that track Monet's roots in this area and place him within the context of his contemporaries. Commentaries accompanying each painting in the catalogue are provided by the organizing curators Lynn Federle Orr, Heather Lemonedes, and David Steel."--BOOK JACKET."
