Ella in the Garden of Giverny
A PICTURE BOOK ABOUT CLAUDE MONET
The book gives a child’s-eye view of Monet and the development of impressionism. It takes as its premise how artists flocked to Giverny at the turn of the 20th century to study the painter’s technique, and tells the story of Ella, the daughter of one such artist, who sneaks into Monet’s garden, and develops a friendship with him. As Ella sketches, Monet talks about his life, career, and his technique.
