The Artist's Gardens
Now available again in a new edition, this multi-faceted tour through the gardens of Claude Monet and his home at Giverny offers a stunning portrait of a great artist’s world.
The radiant colors and brilliant composition of Monet’s floral paintings have inspired artists, gardeners, designers, as well as life-style gurus. This delightful book features dazzling reproductions of Monet’s paintings, accompanied by photographs of the Giverny gardens from the artist’s time and today, insights into the artist’s domestic world, examples of his horticultural genius, and even recipes from his kitchen. Readers will learn what daily life was like in the artist’s home and find inspiration on how to create their own beautiful gardens. The book also includes reproductions from famous American Impressionists in the collection of the Musée d’art américain, a living tribute to Monet.
