119 black and white illustrations

376 pages; dimentions: 10" x 13" x 1.5"

Published by Hugh Lauter Levine Associates

Originally priced at $75.00

The world of Claude Monet-His break with the stultifying conventions of accademic art, his revolutionary ideas about light and color, his reverence for nature, his acute perceptions of the modern art - is best expressed in the hundreds of paintings he produced over a long career. From his youthful years in Le Havre and Paris to the final years in his beloved Giverny- from the joyous discoveries of early impressionism, through povery and bitter struggle for recognition, to fame and honor in old age- there are always the luminous paintings.

That's what "Monet: A Rerospective" is all about. In 132 color plates, and 119 black-and-white illustrations, the paintings are a manifestaion of the full force of the impressionist master's acheivement.

Monet has also been revealed (and reviled) in words-millions of them-written by critics, poets, philosophers, scholars and even statesmen. The shrill ridicule that greeted his breakthrough into a new kind of painting was gradually replaced by appreciation, adoration, and in our own time, scholarly appraisal.
Now for the first time, this mass of material has been assembled into a single book, masterfully selected and annotated by Charles f. Stucky, curator of Nineteenth-Century Painting at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. This book is the result of years of intensive research, selection and translation in Europe and the United States. Beginning with a brief notice about the young artist's entries in the salon of 1865, the text traces Monet's career as seen through contemporary eyes by such famous authors as Proust, Zola, Maupassant, Mallarme, and Clemenceau. Modern interpretaions by art historian William Seitz and critic Clement Greenberg conclude the selection.

The unique combinatin of chronological texts and superb reproductions offers not only a valuable sourcebook for students and lovers of impressionist art but also a visual and verbal documentatin of a great artist and his influence upon the world.
