Claude Monet At Giverny

 A DAY WITH CLAUDE MONET IN GIVERNY
A DAY WITH CLAUDE MONET IN GIVERNY, written by Adrien Goetz and
with a foreword by Hugues Gall, takes readers on an unprecedented tour of the artist’s carefully crafted gardens as well as into his home and studio, both of which have been fully restored. Alongside photographs of the garden are reproductions of Monet’s masterpieces to illustrate how the flora and fauna influenced his art.
This handsome, slipcased volume also serves as a travelogue to the area highlighting points of interest, places to visit, and the region’s rich history. From breakfast at Le Coin des Artistes and a stay at the historic Hôtel Baudy, to a visit to the Musée des Impressionnismes and the Church of Sainte Radegonde, Goetz vibrantly captures the charm of the Norman countryside.
