When his nine-year-old son, Jean, excitedly calls attention to the trains passing by in the countryside, Claude Monet (1840-1926) wishes his own art could excite critics in a similar fashion. But they are more likely to complain about what they call his "impressions" than to rave.
However, when Monet decides to paint the Gare Saint-Lazare in Paris, with the trains bustling in and out, critics take notice. Claude Monet: The Painter Who Stopped the Trains explains who the Impressionists were and takes young readers through Monet's process of painting and the story of how he came to paint trains. The series of train paintings demonstrates what became Monet's signature: his exceptional sensitivity to changing light and atmospheric conditions. After he exhibited the Gare Saint-Lazare series, he forever changed the minds of critics about his art, and about the Impressionists in general. Jos. A. Smith's beautiful illustrations are paired with P. I. Maltbie's comprehensive text to create a fun and fascinating story about the artist.
