A unique and intimate look into Claude Monet's outstanding personal collection of paintings, drawings, and sculptures by fellow artists 

Claude Monet (1840–1926) was the founder of French Impressionism and remains one of the world’s best-known and most beloved painters.  His works are on view in many of the finest museums, and details of his storied life are well documented.  Less well known are Monet’s activities as an art collector; Monet as Collector is a sumptuously illustrated volume that traces this history, and in the process reconstitutes the artist’s private collection.  The masterpieces he assembled throughout his life form an outstanding, unique ensemble, one that has never before been analyzed in its entirety.  The collection includes paintings, drawings, and sculptures by such artists as Delacroix, Corot, Boudin, Jongkind, Manet, Renoir, Caillebotte, Cézanne, Morisot, Pissarro, Rodin, and Signac, and offers a new kind of insight into the artistic tastes and vision of this legendary artist.

Marianne Matheiu is assistant to the director and head of collections at the Musée Marmottan Monet.  Dominique Lobstein is an independent art historian.
