Monet in Normandy by Richard Brettell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book accompanies a major US touring exhibition of Monet's Giverny paintings. It illuminates an overlooked aspect of Monet's career, yet will have wide-ranging appeal to his many devotees. The in-depth textual analysis adds weight to this comprehensive look at Monet's enduring relationship with Normandy. This book will have general appeal on a level with other hit shows such as the recent Matisse/Picasso and Cezanne. It will include many paintings and drawings rarely seen, perfect for Francophiles, history buffs and art lovers alike, as it guides the reader through this breathtaking region of France. While the image of Normandy has been extensively studied in art and literature it has never before been studied in the context of the work of Monet who lived most of his life, and created the majority of his paintings here. An expert on French painting Brettell demonstrates how the three major series of paintings - the "Grainstacks", the "Poplars", and "Rouen Cathedral" - are just as Norman as his representations of the cliffs at Etretat or the port of Honfleur.
