Monet first spotted the village of Giverny from the window of a train and then relocated to the rural haven outside Paris in 1883. Monet was an artist with a passion for painting landscapes and outdoor scenes, and the garden at Giverny soon became the Impressionist master s greatest artistic accomplishment and a catalyst for his work. In 1890, Monet began renovating it, installing a picturesque water lily pond inspired by the Japanese prints he avidly collected. The setting of Monet s "Water Lilies "series his most famous works it is now the most visited garden of its size in the Western world. The beautifully vivid illustrations of Monet s paintings, his home, and the grounds give readers unprecedented access into the flowery paradise to which Monet dedicated the last forty years of his life. Lovers of garden design and Impressionist art are invited on an intimate tour via this handsome volume."

Author: Adrien Goetz,Amyn Aga Khan,Mathieu Deldicque
A comprehensive tour of the magnificent Château de Chantilly, its superlative art collection, important stables, and beautiful gardens. The Domaine de Chantilly is an exceptional treasure of French culture and heritage, rebuilt after the Revolution by Henri d'Orléans, duc d'Aumale--son of King Louis-Philippe--as a home and museum for his unrivaled collection of furniture, decorative arts, books, and paintings. These constitute the Condé Museum's extensive galleries--second only to the Louvre in France--with masterpieces including paintings by Raphael, Clouet, Poussin, and Ingres; the illuminated manuscript Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry; furniture; porcelains; drawings; and early photographs. Chantilly's elegant private apartments, kept precisely as they were during the duc d'Aumale's lifetime, are beautifully preserved examples of the uniquely French Louis Philippe style; its recently restored garden was designed by celebrated landscape architect André Le Nôtre; and the still-active Great Stables are the largest and most opulent in Europe. This slipcased volume offers rare access to one of France's most complete and beautiful stately homes and its world-class art collection that is carefully conserved today by the Institut de France.
