Reviews - What do customers think about Claude Monet, 1840-1926 (Basic Art)?
Be careful. The editorial reviews are for a different book. Aug 17, 2008
The Editorial reviews for this book are not for the book being sold. They are for a book by Stuckey which has an entirely different ISBN number. Unfortunately, I bought this book based on those reviews. I do not know which book the Customer reviewers were looking at. I suspect the positive reviews are for the Stuckey book and the dismissive review is for the Taschen/Karin Sagner-Duchting book. While I would not be dismissive of this book, it is certainly written only for the general reader and is not the scholarly book described in the editorial reviews. Since that is what I wanted, I am disappointed.
Speaking to the Taschen book. It is fully illustrated, but the reproductions are a little dark and to the brown/orangey side. The text is adequate, but nothing new to anyone who knows Monet. To someone new to the subject it gives an overview of Monet's life and work.
Unfortunately, this site does not have an easy way for me to relay this page error to them. I don't want this book, but whose fault is it. I ordered the book that was reviewed. The seller sent the book that was listed.
this site's boo-boo.
UN LIBRO EXQUISITO!!! Jul 28, 2006
Un libro muy bien presentado. Empezando desde su cubierta suave pero firme y reforzada y terminando con las ilustraciones de exquisita calidad. La información es presentada en formato fácil de entender.
Good reading as well as viewing Jun 15, 2004
In addition to the pictures, the text on Money and his paintings is nicely written and enjoyable to read.
Outstanding book!! Aug 24, 1998
I loved this book! The pictures were wonderful and the readings that went with them were as well. Learned many things that I did not know about his artwork. VERY informative...give it a try, it would make a great gift book!
Little substance, fair reproductions Jun 12, 1998
Another book on the overblown impressionists. Little commentary and fair reproductions. A perfect book to put on your coffee table with your Renoir coasters. Souveneir book only.
