About this book

Monet's garden at Giverny stole his heart, captured his imagination and dominated and inspired his art. Since its restoration, Giverny has become a mecca both for lovers of painting and lovers of gardening who come to see for themselves the world of Monet's art and horticultural wizardry. This book looks at the history of the garden, and links the world of Monet the artist with Monet the gardener. Four chapters trace the garden as it reveals its horticultural treasures throughout the year. Special attention is paid to the atmosphere and light that so preoccupied Monet and became the focus of his life as a painter. Throughout, the work done by Giverny's present-day gardeners is analyzed to reveal the practical techniques of maintaining the most-visited garden in the world. Vivian Russell is the author of "Dream Gardens: Discovering the Gardens of the Lake District" and "Gardens of the Riviera".
