MONET

and the Birth of Impressionism

Brimming with illustrations of some of the world's best loved Impressionist paintings, this book offers fresh and fascinating insights to explain why, initially, Impressionism was considered radical - and why it remains one of the most popular artistic movements of all time.

The story of how and why Impressionism came into being is as intriguing as the artworks themselves. While this volume focuses on the movement’s development primarily through the works of Claude Monet, it also gathers together some of the most important works by other Impressionist artists of the 1860s and 1870s. Readers will learn how the upheavals in French society—shifts in the relationship between man and nature, between work and leisure, as well as technological progress and increased mobility—all contributed to Impressionism.
