Meet the master of Impressionism and marvel at the garden that inspired his work in this enchanting book.
As full of facts as Monet's garden was full of flowers, the reader learns how Monet's garden came about, how he painted outside no matter what the weather, and of course, about his famous Water Lilly series.
Over 100 years ago, Claude Monet created a beautiful garden in Giverny in northern France. The painter filled his garden with irises, poppies, tulips, roses and, of course, water lilies. He employed a team of up to ten gardeners to care for it. The garden grew to be both Monet's most exquisite materpiece, and his greatest inspiration.
