Successful during his long career, Claude Monet's work went through many phases. This look at Monet's art is published to accompany a major exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago: the largest retrospective of Monet to be held anywhere for 40 years. It presents 130 of his finest works, drawn from collections all over the world. Paintings from every period are included as well as a number of drawings and pastels that have not been published before. Documentary photographs and key works not included in the exhibition itself are also shown. To complement these illustrations, Stuckey has written a year-by-year chronology, documenting the artist's life in detail.
