Claude & Camille
by Stephanie Cowell
Interested in the Impressionists? This historical, romantic novel will provide a lot of background on how this group of artists met, became friends, worked and lived during 1857 – 1909. Mostly, though, it is about Claude Monet’s relationship with Camille Doncieux, a beautiful rich girl who gives up her wealth and family connections to be with him. Highly recommended – your next trip to the art museum will be so much more meaningful.
