Monet's Passion: The Gardens at Giverny Address Book
The legendary French Impressionist Claude Monet believed his gardens to be his artistic masterpiece. He lived in Giverny for the last forty years of his life, and his gardens there became not only the subject of most of his paintings but also his own private “controlled laboratories” where he could experiment with color, texture, light, and shadow.
Garden designer Elizabeth Murray worked as a gardener on his restored Giverny estate for a year and has firsthand knowledge of and thorough insight into Monet’s own garden planning, color palette, and seasonal plantings. Her expertise is reflected in this outstanding selection of forty color photographs of the flower and water gardens at Giverny, featuring the famous flowering allée, tulip beds, and waterlily pond with its Japanese footbridge.
Hardbound with a hidden spiral binding that lays absolutely flat. Forty full color photographs of the flower and water gardens at Giverny complement information pages with room for 480 names, addresses, home and business telephone numbers, cell/pager, and e-mail addresses. Dimensions: 7 x 8.25".
