Special Order:

Claude Monet was the purest and most characteristic master of Impressionism. The fundamental principle of his art was a new, wholly perceptual observation of the most fleeting aspects of nature-of moving clouds and water, sun and shadow, rain and snow, mist and fog, dawn and sunset. This is a book, therefore, on certain of Monet's landscapes. To some observers the selection may appear bizarre, for many of the works considered date after 1880, when Monet's art was said to have begun a decline. Yet it must be recognized that works of art do no cease to change once they are signed and dated, that each generation discovers its own values, and that standards of artistic worth have never remained static. 64 pp.; 50 illus. Published in 1960 and edited by William C. Seitz, this rare book from MoMA Publications is available in extremely limited quantities. Each book from this special selection has been stored for decades in MoMA’s warehouse. MoMA’s award-winning publications program has been an integral part of the Museum’s mission since its founding in 1929. These exhibition- and collection-related titles are renowned for their high production values.
