For the first time a collection of Monet's own letters have been translated and brought together with a large selection of his paintings, pastels and drawings. There are letters to fellow artists and youthful friends, long affectionate letters to family and loved ones and begging letters in times of hardship.
Alongside the artist's letters are more than 200 superb colour reproductions. These accompany the text and enable you to follow the young artist through his first encounters with the Parisian art scene, his days as a commanding presence in the Impressionist movement and the final chapter of his life when he produced some of his most ambitious and colourful work at Giverny.
