Monet and the Seine synopsis
During his career, the French artist Claude Monet (1840-1926) used the Seine as a test ground for his documentation of the shifting influence of light and atmosphere. He produced many of the ethereal, masculine, and poetic paintings of the Calm River, which remained his favorite subject and also provided solace throughout his life.
This beautiful book combines five of Monet's most magnificent paintings in the Seine, starting with the early works that focused on Argent, Le Havre, and Paris, on the works of Lavacourt and Faithwell, culminating in the stunning fine works that make up the famous series. Morning on the Seine, which depicts a warm stretch of the river near Giverny.
Not only do these paintings offer special glimpses of the creative process of Monet, but they also present the concept of the serial - a concept that will influence the art of future generations. Monet and The Seine feature beautifully reproduced images and attractive articles by four eminent scientists..
