Monet and Modernism

Edited by Karin Sagner- Duchting

This beautifully illustrated volume examines the lines of influence leading from Monet to the great modern exponents of Abstract Expressionism. The book emphasizes the innovative aspects of Monet 's late works, including his famous water lily paintings and Rouen Cathedral series. His paintings are juxtaposed with those of 25 modern artists, including Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still, and Ellsworth Kelly.
