More than once it was been said that Claude Monet's impressionist paintings come alive in his gardens at Giverny. With its water lilies, cherry trees, climbing gardens, floral palettes, and Japanese bridge, the world outside the French artist's window became his favorite retreat and subject. This sumptuous large-format pictorial renders these lovingly preserved gardens in their full, four-season splendor. Jean-Pierre Gilson's radiant, colorful photographs leads us on an unforgettable visual tour; while art historian Dominique Lobstein provides valuable contextual commentary.
