There’s an empty yellow picture frame That hangs on the wall where the curtains fold... And if I open the window wide enough, The sunlight makes it look like gold. Like a picture frame, this collection of poems holds snapshots of life that evoke hope, love, desire, elation, melancholy, and ennui... emotions that form the pulse of life. Whether it is the ever-changing ‘Kaleidoscope’of life, the rapture evoked by nature in ‘The Water Lilies’, the little cherished piece of childhood in ‘Granny’, the bittersweet love in ‘The Perfect Fools’, the power of literature in ‘The Storyteller’ or the ray of hope in ‘Serendipity’, each poem will touch a chord deep inside. This book will leave you with the same warmth as having a kindred soul walk with you awhile.
Claude Monet (18401926) devoted the last 25 years of his career to paintings of the Japanese-style pond and gardens of his house in Giverny, France. Two of these luminous panels Reflections of Clouds on the Water-Lily Pond, a mural-sized triptych, and Water Lilies, a single canvas are among the most well-known and beloved works in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. These late works were for many years less appreciated than Monets classic Impressionist works, being considered unstructured, even unfinished, but with the emergence of Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s, Monet became an extraordinarily relevant predecessor. In 1955 MoMA became the first American museum to acquire one of Monets large-scale water lily compositions. In 1958, when a fire destroyed this and another water lily painting, the publics widespread expression of loss led to the acquisition of the works currently in the collection. This lively volume recounts the history of Monets water lilies at the Museum and, through interviews with contemporary artists, underscores the paintings resonance with the art and artists of the last half-century.
A sequel to The Place in the Forest, this book conjures up the sounds, the smells, and the very feel of water-based life over every season.
'Ends with one of the most reverberating shocks in modern crime fiction' Sunday Times This is the story of a mystery, of thirteen days that begin with one murder and end with another. Jérôme Morval, a man whose passion for art was matched only by his passion for women, has been found dead in the stream that runs through the gardens at Giverny, where Monet did his famous paintings. In Jérôme's pocket is a postcard of Monet's Water Lilies with the words: Eleven years old. Happy Birthday. Entangled in the mystery are three women: a young painting prodigy, the seductive village schoolteacher and an old widow who watches over the village from a mill by the stream. All three of them share a secret. But what do they know about the discovery of Jérôme Morval's corpse? And what is the connection to the mysterious Black Water Lilies, a rumoured masterpiece by Monet that has never been found...

With The Age of Water Lilies, Theresa Kishkan has written a beautiful novel that travels from the time of colonial wars to the pacifist movement to 1960s Victoria, and shares a unique and delightful relationship between 70-year-old Flora and 7-year-old Tessa. When Flora Oakden leaves her English home in 1912 for the fledgling community of Walhachin in British Columbia’s interior, she doesn’t expect to fall in love with the dry sage-scented benchlands above the Thompson River-and with the charismatic labourer who is working in the orchard. When he and all the men of Walhachin return to Europe and the battlefields of France, Flora remains behind, pregnant and unmarried. Shunned by those remaining in the settlement, she travels west to Victoria and meets freethinker Ann Ogilvie, who provides shelter for her in a house overlooking the Ross Bay Cemetery. Fifty years later, among the headstones of Ross Bay, curious young Tessa is mapping her own personal domain when her life becomes interwoven with that of her neighbour, the now-elderly Flora. Out of their friendship, a larger world opens up for these unlikely companions. Theresa has written a sweeping story that transcends time and springs from a passionate exploration of the natural world, its weather, seasons and plants.
