Delve into the life of the well-known painter with the help of infographics.
Many people know that Claude Monet (1840–1926) was a founder of French Impressionism, a master of landscapes who painted Impression, Sunrise, and Water Lilies. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he created the ponds featuring those water lilies and painted 250 oils of them; that his work Water Lily Pond sold for $80.4 million; that his Cliffs Near Dieppe was stolen not once but twice; and that he was almost blind when he painted some of his most famous works. This book presents an instant impression of his life, work, and fame, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.

“The Biographic Series is an exciting new collection of biographies about some of the world’s greatest thinkers, writers, artists and cultural innovators. Whilst each book could be read cover to cover, readers are more likely to randomly select pages, stopping and pausing to find out more about the subject . . . The infographics are visually appealing and entertaining, perhaps reinvigorating an interest in the subject . . .” — Armadillo magazine
