Many people know that Claude Monet (1840–1926) was a founder of French Impressionism, a master of landscapes who painted Impression, Sunrise, and Water Lilies. What, perhaps, they don’t know is that he created the ponds featuring those water lilies and painted 250 oils of them; that his work Water Lily Pond sold for $80.4 million; that his Cliffs Near Dieppe was stolen not once but twice; and that he was almost blind when he painted some of his most famous works. This book presents an instant impression of his life, work, and fame, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.

About the Artist, Claude Monet

Claude Monet (born November 14, 1840, Paris, France—died December 5, 1926, Giverny) was a French painter who was the initiator, leader, and unswerving advocate of the Impressionist style. In his mature works, Monet developed his method of producing repeated studies of the same motif in series, changing canvases with the light or as his interest shifted.

His popularity soared in the second half of the 20th century, when his works traveled the world in museum exhibitions that attracted record-breaking crowds.
