Watercolor illustrations from A Blue Butterfly: A Story About Claude Monet
Bijou Le Tord, author and illustrator
Bijou Le Tord uses the colors of Monet’s palette and reflections on his work as the basis for a picture book. The often poetic text extends vertically down each page like free verse: “Monet / painted / as / a / bird / sings, / for / himself.” The watercolor paintings, which sometimes include the figure of the artist, suggest Monet’s paintings without slavishly copying them.
