Monet : Reflection and Shadows
This beautiful book illustrates the artistic development of the great French painter, Claude Monet from Impressionism to his late work, in the years between 1880 and the beginning of the 20th century. It features his Mediterranean landscapes, wild Atlantic coastal scenes, various stretches of the Seine, meadows with wild flowers and haystacks, water lilies, cathedrals and bridges shrouded in fog. Experimenting with changing light and colour effects in the course of a day and in different seasons, Monet evoked magical moods through reflections and shadows, breaking loose from representational logic and the constraints of the pictorial object―an accomplishment this book highlights.
Published for an exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler in Switzerland, Monet: Reflections and Shadows brings together 50 masterpieces from private collections and renowned museums such as the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Pola Museum in Japan, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago.
