Synopsis

This Art Book contains reproductions of Claude Monet drawings. Book includes Table of Contents and is formatted for all e-readers and Tablets (use rotate and/or zoom feature on landscape/horizontal images for optimal viewing).
Claude Monet (1840-1926) is one of the best-known and most beloved painters in the history of art, master of landscape scenes, rapidly executed in front of the motif, in vibrant oil paint directly onto a canvas. And yet there remains a previously undiscovered aspect of his career: his surprisingly significant role as a draftsman. He drew throughout his seven-decade career, filling pocket-size sketchbooks when he was a truculent teenager and executing pastel drawings of seascapes when he was in his 20s. He drew in different ways using different materials, and in his final years made abstract crayon and pencil drawings as studies for his water-lily paintings. Although Monet helped perpetrate the myth that he did not, and maybe even could not, draw, nearly 500 of more than 2,500 his works are sketchbooks, drawings and pastels.< Claude Monet (1840-1926) is one of the best-known and most beloved painters in the history of art, master of landscape scenes, rapidly executed in front of the motif, in vibrant oil paint directly onto a canvas.
