The Biographic series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world's greatest thinkers and creatives. It takes the defining 50 facts, dates, thoughts, habits and achievements of each subject, and uses infographics to convey all of them in vivid snapshots.
Many people know that Claude Monet (1840–1926) was a founder of French Impressionism, a master of landscapes who painted Impression, Sunrise, and Water Lilies. What, perhaps, they don’t know is that he created the ponds featuring those water lilies and painted 250 oils of them; that his work Water Lily Pond sold for $80.4 million; that his Cliffs Near Dieppe was stolen not once but twice; and that he was almost blind when he painted some of his most famous works. This book presents an instant impression of his life, work, and fame, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.
