Living with Monet May 28, 2008
Monet was the father of modern art. It was his "Impressions, Sunrise" which started Impressionism style of painting. I have a monet calendar http://www.lulu.com/content/2548691 on the wall and the book brought him to life.

Since visiting France over 10 years ago I had wanted a book on Monet which would show not only his paintings but his home--this book does both. It is a lovely book just the right length too. As always, this site has the very best price too!
