Theodore Robinson moved to Evansville Wisconsin when he was 4, studied in Chicago, and visited both Evansville and Chicago for almost 40 years. As an auctioneer in Chicago, I had seen his works both for sale and at the Art Institute, and had read some of the existing bibliographical information.
While an artist's bibliography will always refer to the influences in the life, style and career, In Monet's Light is unique in the interlaced history of Robinson and Monet, as much a story about friends as about artists. Hundreds of artists tried to fall under Monet's acceptance, but Robinson became both a friend and found a mentor.
The quality of the images and their comparisons, the strength of the writing and the knowledge of those involved are of unusual strength. Historical photographs of the artists, landscapes and family members blend into a comparison of their works as Robinson developed his own style of Monet's technique and palette.
While specialists can produce definitive catalogs about the works of an artist, or write dealers can expound on the strength of a piece for sale, this book should have a special placing on a shelf for both institutions and people with an interest in this type of art.
