Win a copy of A Day with Claude Monet in Giverny

Written by on May 12, 2017 in Competitions

This beautiful, slipcased volume offers an intimate tour inside Monet’s home and through the idyllic Giverny garden that inspired his most iconic paintings.

Monet first spotted the village of Giverny from the window of a train and then relocated to the rural haven outside Paris in 1883.

An artist with a passion for painting landscapes and outdoor scenes, the garden at Giverny soon became the impressionist master’s greatest artistic accomplishment and a catalyst for his work.

In 1890, Monet began renovating it, installing a picturesque water lily pond inspired by the Japanese prints he avidly collected. The setting of Monet’s Water Lilies series―his most famous works―it is now the most visited garden of its size in the Western world.

The beautifully vivid illustrations of Monet’s paintings, his home, and the grounds give readers unprecedented access into the flowery paradise to which Monet dedicated the last 40 years of his life.

Lovers of garden design and impressionist art are invited on an intimate tour via this handsome volume.
