|About the Book|
Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926) spent years creating a symphony of hues and textures in the flowers and foliage that surrounded his home in Giverny. Photographer and horticultural designer Elizabeth Murray fell in love with the artist s cherished gardens in 1984, helped in the restoration efforts, and has been studying the garden with her photographers eye ever since, capturing the changing nuances of light and color that glimmer on its petals and pond.
