    Finding Monet in his Garden

    Unlike so many books that make the reader squint at pictures of plant combinations, second-guessing how to create the same affect, Derek Fell explains in his book Secrets of Monet¿s Garden how to create the ambiance of Monet¿s garden at Giverny. Throughout the book boxes entitled Perfect Partners detail combinations of plants that one is likely to find in Monet¿s garden. Derek Fell explains how Monet used color, texture and structure to create the garden that was the inspiration for many of Monet¿s paintings. Although Monet¿s garden is enormous and tended by dozens of gardeners, Derek Fell explains how even the smallest herb garden can possess that same unforgettable charm. Yet this is more than just a book about a charming garden. It is also a book about a remarkable man and his passions for art and gardening. Through interviewing those who knew and loved him, Derek Fell reveals the human side of this incredible artist. By analyzing Monet¿s use of color, structure and, texture in the garden Fell reveals Monet¿s genius. Chock full of reproductions of Monet¿s paintings and colorful pictures of his garden, this is a book you will surely love.
