Pourquoi Monet est important

Signification parmi les nénuphars

“This impressive book is a valuable contribution to the scholarship on Monet and later nineteenth- and early twentieth-century French art and culture more broadly. By the end of it, readers will have a far richer understanding of the manifold ways that Monet’s late work intersects with major artistic, political, and philosophical currents of the period.” Michelle Foa, author of « Georges Seurat: The Art of Vision ». Yale University Press, 2015.
