Below are copies of paintings by Claude Oscar Monet. I tried not to select the most commonly seen ones in museum shops, etc. His style is stimulating to my eyes and heart. I have been fortunate to see many of his works in NYC, Washington D.C., Boston and Chicago. Next stop...Paris.
I hope you can take time out of your day and imagine yourself in a quiet museum, savoring what the Artist has created. Impressionism is the capturing of a fleeting moment. Enjoy.
The museum is now open!
Water Lily Pond- Water Irises
Many of Monet's paintings of his famous Lily Pond and Japanese Bridge were painted in the blue-purple hues. I also like the firey family colors he used in this painting.
Still Life With Melon
The blue dish was the influence of Japanese art that flourished in Paris during the Impressionistic period. Notice the small legs on the bottom of the bowl with peaches.
Madame Monet and Child
Madame Monet's complexion is painted in the realm of peaches and cream. And her item of sewing is like downy soft snow. Notice the child's little pink bow in her hair.
La Japonaise (or Camille Monet in Japanese Costume)
Another example of the Japanese influence on French Painters, during Monet's time period.
In the Meadow (detail).
In The Woods At Giverny: BlancheHoschede Monet At Her Easel With Suzanne Hoschede Reading
A Woman Reading.
I thoroughly enjoy looking at the dappled sunlight dancing on her dress, along with the myriad of colors painted throughout. Her bonnet is divine.
I hope your visit evoked positive thoughts and feelings toward a respected Artist, and gave you a feeling of joy.
