Claude Monet (1840-1926) exemplified Impressionism more completely and pushed it further than any other painter. The styles radicalism lay in the determination to paint not just reality but the seeing of reality, the act of perception itself, by showing how light, especially bright light, tended to dissolve the colors and forms of the world.

Claude Monet was a famous French painter whose work gave a name to the art movement Impressionism, which was concerned with capturing light and natural forms. Claude Monet was born on November 14, 1840, in Paris, France. During his time in Argenteuil, Monet visited with many of his artist friends, including Renoir, Pissarro and Edouard Manet-who, according to Monet in a later interview, at first hated him because people confused their names. Banding together with several other artists, Monet helped form the Société Anonyme des Artistes, Peintres, Sculpteurs, Graveurs, as an alternative to the Salon and exhibited their works together.

The Artists in Their Time series explores some of the most influential artist of the 20th century. The goal is to discuss the work of each artist in relation to not only their life but also what was happening in the world around them at the time. Here Susie Hodge looks at Claude Monet, one of the greatest artists of all time whose work is so popular it adorns thousands of items from cookie tins and mouse pads to tablecloths. I have also seen some of his famous paintings of water lilies reproduced as wall murals that you can use to decorate your home (and do not think that I have not thought of decorating a master bedroom suite around such a mural, other paintings of Monet, and as close to his particular shade of blue as I can get for painting the walls).

Hodge breaks down Monet's life into a series of distinct periods (e.g, First Success, Monte's Garden), within which she highlights key elements (e.g., money problems, portable paints). Sidebars are devoted to other key points (e.g., Monet's Eyesight, The Influence of Japan). Usually on the bottom left of each two-page spread you will find a Timeline that traces key events in Monet's life (the entire Timeline is repeated in the back of the book). In addition to covering the biographical details of Monet's life, the emphasis is on the evolution of his art and the birth of Impressionism. Since the name of the movement was coined by the critic Louis Leroy in his insulting article "Exhibition of Impressionists" after seeing Monet's "Impression, Sunrise," Monet was going to be an important figure in the history of the Impressionists on that basis alone. But then the rest of his paintings would help make him the paradigmatic Impressionist artist. Certainly he holds that position for me.

The book is amply illustrated and you have to get to the final pages on Monet's life before you will not find three illustrations on each two-page spread. A dozen of Monet's paintings, including "Impression, Sunrise" and "Interior of the Gare Saint-Lazare," are reproduced on right-hand pages, along with comments on the paintings and often a quote from Monet. Two other Monet paintings are reproduced in smaller fashion and Hodge makes an effort to show the works of artists from whom Monet learned to paint (e.g., Eugene Boudin's "Evening, Le Havre"), those of his friends (e.g., "Self-portrait" by Camille Pissarro), and those who came after him that were inspired by Monet's art (e.g., Vincent van Gogh's "Irises"). Other paintings reflect such events as the Franco-Prussian War and Exposition Universelle of 1889. There are also photographs reflecting the times, although the ones that I found most interesting attempted to show what some of the thing Monet painted in his Impressionist works "really" looked like. One of the interesting aspects of the book are the various paintings of Monet himself done by other artists, from Charles-Maire Lhuillier and Edouard Manet to Auguste Renoir, Gustave Caillebotte and John Singer Sargent.

The only real complaint is that when Hodge talks the twenty-five paintings that Monet did of the haystacks in a field neat his house in Giverny, there is only one example, "Haystacks at the End of Summer, Morning." Since I have seen several of the paintings in the series at the Art Institute of Chicago, it would be nice to have seen more than one example here so that instead of talking about how Monet painted them at different times, from different angels, and different colors and lights, you could see more of the paintings to evidence the point. But the book does live up to its goal of presenting the artist in his time, and there are plenty of other books for young readers to turn to for more about Monet after they have enjoyed this splendid introduction. Other titles in this series include looks at Salvador Dali, Alberto Giacometti, Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh, and Andy Warhol.

As a principal and elementary teacher, I like to expose young children to great art. This book tells the story of how Monet developed his art. I learned many new facts about the artist reading it. There are plenty of illustrations and time lines, so you see the sequence of influences on his art and life.

Monet had a number of tragedies affect his life - losing artist friends in the war, death of his young wife Camille and eldest son Jean along with poverty struggling to be an artist in his early years. You learn, through reading this book, that the name for his painting style "impressionism" came from a title of one of his paintings Impression Sunrise 1872 of Le Havre in Normandy. One of the critics joked about it and called his painter friends and Monet Impressionists.

I didn't realize John Singer Sargent - one of my favorite painters - had painted Money painting outside. That work, along with many of Monet's paintings, are included in this book. It's a chronological look at his life and some of his works. Children ages six through middle school might find it interesting. I did as an adult. Sometimes reading a comprehensive children's book like this is one of the best introductions to a non-fiction topic as you get a survey view from start to finish of a life or subject.

This is very well done on the life of Claude Monet.
