Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Through new translations of letters to family, friends, fellow artists, business associates, and collectors, Monet reveals himself in many differing moods and circumstances. Letters to his companion and eventually second wife, Alice Hoschede, report on the successes and failures of his painting expeditions, which took him away from home for months at a time. Throughout, he reveals his work methods and his joy when he succeeds in capturing a certain quality of light or color. His letters are also filled with his frequent financial woes, forcing him to request assistance from his friends and dealers again and again. An introductory biography and brief essays at the beginning of each chronological division place the letters in context. The letters are enriched by over 200 superb color reproductions. A sumptuous book of value for high school students as well as graduate students and scholars.-- Lynell A. Morr, John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art Lib., Sarasota, Fla.
