Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
The "Ticktock Essential Artists" series presents six influential nineteenth-century French artists in a busy format combining text and reproductions on white backgrounds. The illustrations are liberally scattered across the pages and include extracted details. In four sections, art historian Spence explores each artist's world, life, vision, and influence. In this volume, young art-lovers will meet Claude Monet as he is introduced to plein air painting by Eugene Boudin, and soon, along with artists Sisley and Pissarro, identified as an "Impressionist." With luminous paintings that used short strokes of paint (taches) to show the effects of light on surfaces at different times of day, Monet was lucky to become a success in his own time. Readers will recognize some of these works (e.g., views of Rouen Cathedral, a series of grain stacks in varying lights, a field of bright poppies) and be surprised by others. They will be intrigued by the selection of photos, such as one of an advertisement for the palette of colors offered by a Paris firm. In later life, Monet purchased a house in Giverny, and painted his water garden and water lilies over and over again. Always remaining true to his own style, Monet attracted American collectors and patrons such as French Prime Minister Clemenceau. His work was sought after and became extremely influential, even to painters like Kandinsky and Pollock. Crammed with information and reproductions of varying quality, this fascinating study works best if accompanied by volumes and DVDs showing the artists' work and, whenever possible, trips to museums to see originals. Monet appears in Ross King's The Judgment of Paris (Walker, 2006). Reviewer: Barbara L.Talcroft
Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
British art historian Spence brings his expertise to this "Great Artists of the World" series exploring each artist's world, life, vision, and influence in a busy format combining text and reproductions liberally scattered on white backgrounds. This volume introduces Claude Monet, encouraged by Eugene Boudin to try plein air painting and soon, along with Sisley and Pissarro, identified as an "Impressionist." Monet was lucky to become a success in his own time with luminous paintings using short strokes of paint (taches) to show the effects of light on surfaces at different times of day. Art-lovers will recognize some of these works (views of Rouen Cathedral, a series of grain stacks in varying lights, a field of bright poppies), be surprised by others, and intrigued by photos like one of an advertisement for the palette of colors offered by a Paris firm. In later life, Monet purchased a house in Giverny, painting over and over his water garden and water lilies. Always remaining true to his own style, Monet attracted American collectors and patrons such as French Prime Minister Clemenceau, his work becoming sought after and extremely influential, even on painters like Kandinsky and Pollock. This series is a contraction in size of an earlier set entited—"Ticktock Essential Artists," 2009—with some added pages including "Did You Know?" facts, a timeline, artist quotations, analysis of one work (Bathing at La Grenouillere), lists of museums where Monet's work can be seen, and a bibliography of books and websites. Though the unattractive hard covers make these volumes more durable for libraries, reduction in size has caused crowded pages, very small fonts, and reproductions marred by tight gutters. The extreme difference in price may also be a factor in deciding whether to purchase the old or new series. Reviewer: Barbara L. Talcroft
