IMPRESSIONISM. This complete catalog of Monet's famous Water Lilies - featuring 210 paintings from private and public collections - is an essential volume on a key contribution to impressionist art. Monet, the father of French impressionist painting, devoted twenty-five years to a series of paintings of the water lilies that floated in the pond of his lavish garden in Giverny. This volume is dedicated to those paintings, and opens with a biography of Monet that links the artist's childhood passion for nature and for drawing to his later fascination with light. This definitive catalog is completed by 210 color reproductions of the water lily paintings with annotated captions, period shots of Giverny by photographers such as Cartier-Bresson, and rare documents including Monet's personal letters to his optometrist regarding his failing eyesight, which has been linked to his development of the impressionist style
