Many people know that Claude Monet (1840-1926) was a founder of French Impressionism, a master of landscapes who painted Impression, Sunrise and Water Lilies. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he created the ponds featuring those water lilies and painted 250 oils of them; that his work Water Lily Pond sold for $80.4 million; that his Cliffs Near Dieppe was stolen not once but twice; and that he was almost blind when he painted some of his most famous works.
Biographic: Monet presents an instant impression of his life, work and fame, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.
The Biographic series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world’s greatest thinkers and creatives. It takes the 50 defining facts, dates, thoughts, habits, and achievements of each subject, and uses infographics to convey each of them in vivid snapshots.
