In his final decades, Claude Monet experienced personal tribulations at the same time he developed an increasingly unconventional approach to painting. From about 1913, just after he was diagnosed with cataracts, until his death, in 1926, Monet responded to his failing vision and personal sorrows by turning to his great projects of passion: painting and gardening. His garden at Giverny—with its diverse, radiant plantings and tranquil lily pond covered by a Japanese bridge—became his sole subject for works in a sometimes startling palette that verged on abstraction, anticipating later art movements of the twentieth century. Softcover, 40 pages.
