A new paperback edition of Vivian Russell' s much-admired exploration of Claude Monet' s garden at Giverny. This book ventures behind the scenes to chart the history of one of the world' s most famous gardens, linking the world of Monet the artist with Monet the gardener. Four chapters trace the garden through the changing seasons, paying special attention to the atmosphere and light that so preoccupied Monet and became the focus of his life as a painter. Throughout, the work done by Giverny' s present-day gardeners is analysed to reveal the practical techniques of maintaining the most-visited garden in the world.
