Book Description

Impressionist painter Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926), eternally fascinated by color, light, and atmosphere, found expression for these elements in his gardens as well as his canvases. The master gardener, horticulturist, and colorist spent decades creating a tapestry of hues and textures in the flowers and foliage that surrounded his Giverny home—a living laboratory for him to study the ever-changing natural world. Author and photographer Elizabeth Murray helped to restore Monet’s estate in the 1980s; she returns each year to capture the seasonal changes of the gardens. This calendar showcases 12 of her photographs, each accompanied by a concise description.Printed on FSC-certified paper with soy-based inks.12 monthly grids and full-color artwork.
