Page Views Explores Monet: The Early Years

We hope you’re enjoying our first Page Views selection, The Judgment of Paris: The Revolutionary Decade That Gave The World Impressionism by Ross King (Walker & Company, 2006) as you prepare for your visit to Monet: The Early Years at the Legion of Honor. King’s work provides an approachable view into the political, social and artistic lineages of Impressionism. From Meisonnier’s painstaking and elaborate historical paintings, to the then-derided, now-celebrated works of the Salon des Refusés, we’re captivated by this period.

Join us on April 26 for our inaugural Page Views meetup at the Legion of Honor from 1:30–2:30 pm in the Florence Gould auditorium. Can’t attend in person? Enjoy the event on Facebook Live and participate remotely.

We can’t wait to discuss the book with you! In the meantime, here are some questions to consider while you read:
