Recently published: Portrait of an Artist: Claude Monet Discover the Artist Behind the Masterpieces by Lucy Brownridge

This book recounts Monet’s life and art for young readers. Throughout, there are copies of paintings that Monet completed. At the end of the book, those who are interested can learn more about the works. Monet’s evolution as an artist from making caricatures when he was young, to academy studies, to finding his own style are all described. Some attention is also given to Monet’s personal life, especially his love for the mother of his children. All in all, a good resource for students who are just beginning their studies of art history.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
