Claude Monet: The Painter Who Stopped the Trains
In 1876, trains were the fastest, most modern means of transportation. Claude Monet’s young son found excitement and joy in watching the trains speed past, and Monet wanted to recreate those feelings with his paintings. This picture book tells the story of how he was able to capture the energy of the locomotives and change the way people saw art.
