Overview

In this new study of Claude Monet's landscape paintings and the terrain that inspired him, award-winning author and photographer Vivian Russell retraces Monet's footsteps to explore the vitality of nature both in reality and in Monet's art.

Following in Monet's footsteps, Vivian Russell will photograph the landscape around his favorite painting spots to capture the beauty and the moods reflected in nearly forty of his most lovely landscape works. His windswept skies, towering poplars, vertiginous cliffs and cityscapes — are were fleeting moments captured in luminous paint and, created with breathless speed, they expressed the vitality of nature and the elements. favorite painting haunts, many of which remain unchanged: the river Creuse, the coasts of France, Antibes, Etretat, Belle Isle, near his home (haystacks, poplars), and his expeditions further afield to Holland, Norway, Venice, and London. Russell's photographs, taken during the appropriate seasons, capture the spirit and excitement of the locations and convey the visual drama of Monet's motifs. These are supported by a text that tells the stories behind each location—how Monet came to be there, the personal circumstances surrounding his travels, what excited him about the "motif," as he called it, where he stayed/lived, his thoughts, struggles, and aims. Excerpts from his letters to his wife, Alice, as well as his later recollections and those of his friends, bring these days to life. To reflect the evolution of Monet's art, the book is structured by motif.

With its rich mix of art, photography, and words that reveal the inner workings and private feelings of this most celebrated painter of nature, Monet's Landscapes gives a fresh vision of Monet's life and work. As in her award-winning Monet's Garden, Vivian Russell's sensibility as a writer and her expertise as a photographer combine to make this book as enlightening as we have come to expect from this talented author and photographer.

    A Beautiful and Very Informative Adjunct to the Monet Library

    Monet's evocative landscapes with their lush and subtle colors, thrilling use of light from various times of the day and the seasons, and varied locations of vantage have rarely been so beautifully presented as in this small but elegant book by Vivian Russell.Russell has visited many of the sites Monet painted and took photographs not only of the particular subject of his paintings, but also of the surrounding countryside, a fact that adds flavor of place to what must have inspired Monet. Not only does she include the coasts of France and Giverny, Monet's home and famous gardens, but she also traveled to Venice (some of Monet's most ethereal works are from this special haven), Norway, the flower fields of Holland, and the majesty of London.The photographs are superb and offer interesting information on what Monet decided to edit or to enrich with the impressionist's eye. Russell is a fine writer and her comments and sensitivity to include much information from Monet's letters makes this book not only a perfect coffee table tome, but also a fine adjunct to art students and collectors alike. Highly Recommended! Grady Harp
