A couple of years ago I wrote a post about famous artists I would pick to illustrate classic works of fiction. Since that post I’ve had a fair bit of time to form new associations between the books I read the art I view. Here are seven more artist-book dream pairings.
Anne of Green Gables – Claude Monet (1840-1926)
If ever there were an artist who could perfectly capture the beautiful landscape of Prince Edward Island, it’s Monet. Monet painted a series of about two hundred fifty water lilies, more than qualifying him to illustrate the lily maid scene in chapter twenty-eight, and his painting of the woman with the parasol has always reminded me a bit of Anne.
