Claude Monet, the leading figure in the Impressionist movement, was also a great collector. He lavished great attention on his acquisitions, whether selecting works to buy or taking care of the paintings given to him by his artist friends. He was capable of spending very considerable sums to obtain major works by the likes of Renoir or Cézanne. By dint of paintstaking research worthy of a complex police investigation, Marianne Mathieu and Dominique Lobstein have recreated this long-forgotten and yet incredibly rich personal collection, which is presented in this volume.

A History of Heroes of the Imagination

By piecing the lives of selected individuals into a grand mosaic, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Daniel J. Boorstin explores the development of artistic innovation over 3,000 years. A hugely ambitious chronicle of the arts that Boorstin delivers with the scope that made his Discoverers a national bestseller. Even as he tells the stories of such individual creators as Homer, Joyce, Giotto, Picasso, Handel, Wagner, and Virginia Woolf, Boorstin assembles them into a grand mosaic of aesthetic and intellectual invention. In the process he tells us not only how great art (and great architecture and philosophy) is created, but where it comes from and how it has shaped and mirrored societies from Vedic India to the twentieth-century United States.

Claude Monet (1840-1926) was the most typical and the most individual Impressionist painter. His long life he dedicated to a pictorial exploration of the sensations which reality, and in particular landscape, offers the human eye. But while Monet the painter was faithful and persevering in the pursuit of his motifs, his personal life followed a more restless course. Parisian by birth, he discovered plein-air painting as a youth in the provinces, where one of his homes, Argenteuil, has come to represent the artistic flowering and official establishment of Impressionism as a movement, with Monet as its creative leader.

Claude Monet (18401926) devoted the last 25 years of his career to paintings of the Japanese-style pond and gardens of his house in Giverny, France. Two of these luminous panels Reflections of Clouds on the Water-Lily Pond, a mural-sized triptych, and Water Lilies, a single canvas are among the most well-known and beloved works in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. These late works were for many years less appreciated than Monets classic Impressionist works, being considered unstructured, even unfinished, but with the emergence of Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s, Monet became an extraordinarily relevant predecessor. In 1955 MoMA became the first American museum to acquire one of Monets large-scale water lily compositions. In 1958, when a fire destroyed this and another water lily painting, the publics widespread expression of loss led to the acquisition of the works currently in the collection. This lively volume recounts the history of Monets water lilies at the Museum and, through interviews with contemporary artists, underscores the paintings resonance with the art and artists of the last half-century.

Sie war die Muse Claude Monets. Er war ihr Schicksal. Der bewegende Künstler-Roman über Claude Monet und Camille Doncieux. Frankreich, zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts. Ein gealterter Claude Monet blickt auf sein Leben zurück und erinnert sich: Eben setzt die Dämmerung ein, als ihn der Schein einer Schaufensterlampe in eine Pariser Buchhandlung lockt. Dort sieht er sie zum ersten Mal: Camille Doncieux, das Mädchen aus reichem Hause. Monet ist noch unbekannt und bettelarm, aber er weiß, dass er sie malen muss, wieder und wieder. Camille steht ihm Modell, wird seine Muse – und schließlich die Liebe seines Lebens. Für Monet gibt Camille alles auf, glaubt an ihn und seine Malerei wie niemand sonst. Doch statt des schillernden Lebens der Bohème erwarten sie Entbehrungen und Einsamkeit, wenn Monet über seine maßlose Leidenschaft für die Malerei alles andere vergisst. Und so wird ihre Liebe auf mehr als eine harte Probe gestellt. Stephanie Cowell, selbst Tochter zweier Künstler, hat mit ihrem wunderbar atmosphärischen Künstler-Roman dem bekanntesten Vertreter der impressionistischen Malerei, Claude Monet, und seiner großen Liebe ein schillerndes Denkmal gesetzt. Sie werden die Gemälde des Malers nach dem Lesen dieses Romans mit anderen Augen betrachten. Die Frau im grünen Kleid von Stephanie Cowell: als eBook erhältlich!

Monet by Himself

This volume on the life and work of Claude Monet is quite unlike any other book on this popular artist, as for the first time his letters have been brought together with his paintings, pastels and drawings. There are letters to his fellow artists and youthful friends, long affectionate letters to family and loved ones and begging letters in times of hardship. We read of Monet's persistence in money matters, his frustrations and successes while on painting expeditions to Italy, Brittany and Norway, and his experience of solitude, illness and bereavement in later life. Monet emerges from the correspondence as a more troubled and complex individual than his sun-filled canvases might suggest. Alongside the artist's letters are more than 200 superb colour reproductions. These accompany the text and enable the reader to follow the young artist through his first encounters with the Parisian art scene, his days as a commanding presence in the Impressionist movement and the final chapter of his life when he produced some of his most ambitious and colourful work at Giverny.
