As part of an effort to shape the future of scholarly publishing, the Getty Foundation in 2009 invited the Art Institute of Chicago and eight other museums to participate in a venture called the Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI). The Art Institute is pleased to present the first catalogue produced from this venture: Monet: Paintings and Drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago, which includes this work. Entries on the museum's 47 artworks by Monet include high-resolution imaging, in-depth curatorial essays, and conservation reports.
