Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0912804335, Paperback)First invited by Pierre-Auguste Renoir to the Italian Riviera in 1883, Monet over the next decades crafted several magnificent series of works, remarkably different from the paintings that had established his reputation in the North. Here, assembled for the first time in its entirety, is the audaciously colorful group of works that he executed on the Italian and French Rivieras in 1884 and 1888, and in Venice in 1908. Arresting in their stunning color, dazzling light effects, and the sheer beauty of the land and the sea they depict, these paintings address in a new language the artist's ability to stretch his own pictorial boundaries.
Now available in paperback, this new look at Monet accompanied the highly successful exhibition at the Kimbell Art Museum and the Brooklyn Museum in 1997.

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.
