"In this beautifully illustrated book, John House analyses the career of Claude Monet, the artist who, more than any other, was responsible for the public image of Impressionism. House focuses on the evolution in Monet's painting technique and execution, relating it to his ideas, experiences and the contexts in which he worked. He reveals the complexities of Monet's methods and firmly establishes that his finished paintings were the product of protracted experiment and careful calculation and planning. ... This book provides the fullest account ever written of Monet's working practices and the ways in which they evolved, and throws much new light on issues central to the understanding of French Impressionist painting as a whole.
