Presumed First Edition Hard Cover Fine in Fine Dust Jacket: 9.5 x 11 in.: 120 pages 

006007006007: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Introduction by Josef Helfenstein. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "In the early 1940s, John and Dominique de Menil began to acquire art. Collecting in an intuitive and personal manner, the de Menils gathered things in which we believe, as John phrased it, and over time developed an inspired collection that would eventually find a permanent home at The Menil Collection in Houston. In addition to building their own holdings, the de Menils were committed to extending their vision to major museums in Europe and America, especially France. This beautifully illustrated book showcases some fifty works that the de Menils acquired over the decades, including pieces by such major twentieth-century artists as Lee Bontecou, Christo, Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, Jackson Pollock, Jean Tinguely, and Andy Warhol, as well as an important group of African, Oceanic, and pre-Columbian works.

"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.
