A popular artist biography about Claude Monet, how he came to paint trains, and how he forever changed the minds of critics about his art and about the Impressionists in general. The story begins with Monet's nine-year-old son admiring an oncoming train. Monet wishes his own art could excite critics as much as trains excite his son. What follows is a biography of Monet's painting technique, how critics viewed him, his interaction with other Impressionists, and much more. The book also includes illustrations, reproductions of some of Monet's actual paintings, a timeline and a bibliography.
