  • Author: G. Geoffry
  • Title: Claude Monet, Sa Vie,  Son Oeuvre (1840-1889)
  • Published: 1920

L’ impressionnisme:

  1. présence de la nature vivante
  2. souffles de ciel
  3. chansons apaisées des criques roze
  4. frissionant des feuillages
  5. fuite de mer changeante
  6. Monet ai inventé la mer,
  7. …les rthymes, les reflets infinis et son mouvement.
  8. Last thoughts:
  9. Art gives us what we are missing…
  10. L’art nous apport ce qui nous manquait !

Conclusion:

  1. The book serves its purpose…depending on
  2. what you are looking for.
  3. 50% of the book is filled with 195 reproductions. = beautiful
  4. The rest of the book is more about the reception (art critics, Salons)
  5. of Monet’s chef d’oeuvres.
  6. If you are looking for a book about ‘the man’ Monet
  7. this is not the one you should read.
  8. I keep searching for a good biography…of Monet.
