Monetby Vanessa Potts, Claire O'Mahony (Introduction)
Monet looks at/i>
Along with the other Impressionists, Monet's aim in his painting was to capture reality and analyse the ever-changing nature of light and color. He recorded his surroundings faithfully, from the grime of a Paris railway station to the incandescent beauty of his later paintings based on the gardens he created at Giverny in northeastern France.
Monet looks at all aspects of the painter's artistic style, with detailed commentary on 120 of his works. Some are held to be his most important pieces; others may be less well known, but all are essential to his artistic development.
