  • During the French impressionism period, artists like Monet moved outside the studio to paint elaborate plein air "impressions" of the world around them. This book brings together two hundred full-color images from the period that will leave readers breathless as they move through masterworks by Corot, Degas, Renoir, Gauguin, Caillebotte, and many of their contemporaries before ending on what is undeniably the movement's most well-loved masterwork: Monet's Water Lilies, painted in his famous garden in Giverny.
