Publisher's Description

In November 1885, impressionist painter Claude Monet vacationed in Étretat, France, where he spent his days outside, painting scenes of the seaside village. One morning he rose early and carried all of his supplies and half-finished paintings out to the cliffs and rocky beach, finally stopping to paint the arch called Manneporte. Eager to capture the scene before him, and aware that he must work quickly to catch the light, Monet became so engrossed in his work that he forgot to watch the incoming tide. Based on a true incident, MONET PAINTS A DAY introduces readers to the life and nature of this illustrious impressionist. Interspersed throughout the story are excerpts from the painter’s notes and letters, while a second layer of text and back matter includes information about Impressionism as a whole. Lush watercolor illustrations in the Impressionist style give readers a visual for this artistic movement. A bibliography is also included.

Publisher's Weekly

Danneberg dramatizes a day in Claude Monet’s life, based on an actual event in 1885. In Étretat, France, children assist Monet in carrying his paintings down to the shore. There, the bearded artist in blue begins to paint furiously. Danneberg’s dynamic language, first-person free verse in Monet’s voice, mimics the movement in Heimerl’s impressionistic artwork: “Quickly I... ruffle my paintbrush against the canvas as jade waters ruffle against the shore’s edge.” Asides provide brief descriptions of Monet’s art and personality: “Monet’s frustration sometimes led to temper tantrums.” This lovely tribute to the artist takes a surprising turn that emphasizes the challenge of capturing ephemeral moments in nature. Ages 6–9. (July) 2012 Reed Business Information
