"Monet's London: Artists' Reflections on the Thames" intimately explores Expressionist Claude Monet's "London" series of paintings, especially those that immortalized the Thames River. In this volume we are invited to explore the scope of the socio-cultural context of that time, through the works of Monet's contemporaries: Derain, Coburn, Fenton, Pennell, and Whistler, to name a few. In the latter half of the 19th century, London, specifically around the Thames, had become a seductive urban landscape--a place that encouraged artists to create.
Not only does "Monet's London" document an important exhibition, but it is also the first publication to thoroughly document and discuss the artistic and cultural context of Modernist London (1859-1914), with special emphasis on the visual power of the Thames River.
