worth-while experience.The book is a true pearl for persons like me with an interest in artists and their lives. I would gladly recommend it to other art lovers
This beautifully written novel conjures up all the images that come to mind at the mention of this term : the desperately poor, struggling young painters sharing freezing, spartan attics and studios, the pawning of overcoats in winter, the gatherings around marble tables in dirty little gas-lit cafés, the living on bread, sausages, cheese and cheap wine, the never-ending talk about art, the painting outdoors in all seasons and weathers, the falling in and out of love, the hopes and dreams of success and the crushing disappointments.
Apart from giving us a passionate and moving love story, Stephanie Cowell paints beautiful word pictures of all the places immortalized in Monet’s paintings, whether it’s the streets of Paris, the rough Brittany coast, idyllic little villages, snowy landscapes, railway stations, fields, rivers or his glorious Giverny garden.
And last but not least she is able to transmit the painters’ irresistible, all-consuming urge to give artistic expression to their inner visions.
A moving story of great love and great art as luminous as a Monet painting.
