Seeking a tranquil place to simultaneously indulge his twin passions of painting and gardening, master impressionist Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926) moved to the small Normandy village of Giverny in 1883. Finding a house on a verdant plot of land, he began transforming its grounds into a painter's paradise, planting extensive gardens of infinitely variable color and form. The project occupied the rest of his life and resulted in some of his most famous paintings. After Monet's death, the gardens were neglected until the 1980s, when an effort aided by photographer and horticultural designer Elizabeth Murray restored their former grandeur. Murray returns to the gardens regularly to photograph the ever-changing beauty that so inspired Monet. Pomegranate also publishes Elizabeth Murray's book Monet's Passion: Ideas, Inspiration, and Insights from the Painter's Gardens (revised edition, 2010).This calendar is perfect as dcor in your home, kitchen, or office and easily helps to keep track of important dates, contacts, and other events at a glance.

He spent decades creating a tapestry of hues and textures in the flowers and foliage that surrounded his Giverny home, a living laboratory for the artist to study the ever-changing natural world. Photographer and horticultural designer Elizabeth Murray fell in love with Monets gardens on her first visit to the Giverny estate in 1984. She volunteered during its restoration and returns regularly to record the gardens daily and seasonal transformations. Murrays firsthand knowledge of the grounds illuminates the vivid photographs and accompanying descriptions in this calendar. Pomegranate also publishes Elizabeth Murrays book Monets Passion: Ideas, Inspiration and Insights from the Painters Gardens (revised edition, 2010).
