Monet and the Mediterranean

The first book to focus on Claude Monet’s sojourns to the southern coasts of France and Italy, Monet and the Mediterranean unites over one hundred paintings created in the course of three major trips, from 1883 to 1908. Many of these works have never before been reproduced in color or even publicly shown, for they have been gathered together by Joachim Pissarro from the collections of not only major museums but of private individuals worldwide. Monet and the Mediterranean features over one hundred color plates, with introductory commentaries for each series or grouping of paintings. Produced in association with the Kimbell Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas, this book accompanies the first major exhibition of Monet’s Mediterranean paintings.
