If you have not yet been to Giverny in Nor­mandy, A Day with Claude Monet in Giverny will con­vince you to make the trip. The book takes an in­trigu­ing look at how the artist came to live in the vil­lage, and also pro­vides in­ter­est­ing in­sights into Giverny’s his­tory and a look at the pic­turesque house where Monet spent the last 40 years of his life. But it is the beau­ti­ful im­ages that will en­sure this book re­mains your cof­fee ta­ble favourite. Photographs of Monet’s home and gar­dens are jux­ta­posed with his most fa­mous paint­ings and im­ages of the artist him­self, giv­ing read­ers a very spe­cial view of the artist’s life in this idyl­lic Nor­mandy vil­lage.
