In November 1885, impressionist painter Claude Monet vacationed in Étretat, France, where he spent his days outside, painting scenes of the seaside village. One morning he rose early and carried all of his supplies and half-finished paintings out to the cliffs and rocky beach, finally stopping to paint the arch called Manneporte. Eager to capture the scene before him, and aware that he must work quickly to catch the light, Monet became so engrossed in his work that he forgot to watch the incoming tide. Based on a true incident, Monet Paints a Day introduces readers to the life and nature of this illustrious impressionist. Written by Julie Danneberg, illustrated by Caitlin Heimerl from Charlesbridge Publishing.
