Um livro lindo. Foi com um livro sobre Monet que eu aprendi a gostar de pintura. ( )
  JuliaBoechat | Mar 30, 2013 |
As someone who has always been drawn to Monet’s paintings but has absolutely no background in art history, I found this slim book to be both entertaining and informative. The text helps a novice like me notice artistic techniques while putting Monet’s work in historical context. Monet’s personal life is not explored in detail, but the reader gets a general outline of its vicissitudes. It’s a nice quality book but not too heavy. ( )
