Synopsis

In 1928, the former French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau published Claude Monet: Les Nymphéas (The Water-Lilies), a memoir of his longtime friend. Bruce Michelson has produced a new English translation, presented here with useful notes and illustrations.

Michelson’s translations of three short essays on art by Clemenceau, originally published by La Justice in the late XIX c., are included as appendices.
