By the beginning of the twentieth century, Claude Monet was a figure of national importance in France - the patriarch of impressionism and the country's foremost landscape painter. This richly illustrated book examines for the first time the body of work that Monet completed from 1900 until his death in 1926, a period during which he was enormously productive, increasingly wealthy, and ever more venerated.
