Monet's CAMILLE IN A GREEN DRESS now at Met Museum

There's a current exhibition about Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity at the Metropolitan Museum which features Monet's ORIGINAL PAINTING OF CAMILLE IN HER GREEN DRESS. I have never seen it in person as it is from Bremen. So do go see it if you can. The exhibition is open until May 27th, 2013.

Thanks so much for all the wonderful e-mails about my novel CLAUDE and CAMILLE: A NOVEL OF MONET

Please do browse the seventy posts in this blog!

Please do browse some of the seventy lovingly researched mini-posts in this blog, each about different tiny parts of the lives of the impressionists including Renoir painting Richard Wagner, Berthe Morisot's last letter to her daughter, did Monet's second wife destroy his first wife's (Camille's) letters and diaries, the secret life of Monet's best friend Frederic Bazille, an auction of Renoir's personal papers including his wedding license. Your blog author has taken a break to finish her new novel but yes....there may be another novel about an impressionist in my future as well!

Claude Monet in his early twenties
It is now almost three years since CLAUDE & CAMILLE: A NOVEL OF MONET was first published. In translation, it has traveled to Italy, Germany, Poland, Brazil, China and onward! Thank you to the tens of thousands of people who have read it! And to everyone who has loved this blog!
