Hardback Painting The Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse Catalogue

This beautifully printed book brings to life the story of gardens in art, as painted by the Impressionists. Among the first to portray gardens directly from life, the Impressionists chose to concentrate on their colour and form rather than using them as a background. This book focuses on Monet and the creation of his garden at Giverny and explores the relationship between artists and gardens.
