Book Description This title is one in a series presenting four masterpieces by four immortal French impressionist painters. Each miniature book faithfully reproduces its title painting on the front cover, and is packaged in a handsome slipcase that doubles as a picture frame. The frame can stand up on a desk or tabletop or be hung on the wall to display the book cover’s striking painting. Each book’s interior discusses its title painting, describing the artist’s approach to his work, analyzing the picture’s fine points, and showing close-up details from the painting. A final two-page spread presents a timeline capsule biography that lists significant events in the painter’s life. Monet—Woman with a Parasol, shows and discusses Claude Monet’s techniques as he captures his subject dramatically from a low-angle perspective. This beautiful painting, which dates from 1875, hangs in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
