Hotel des Roches Noires, Trouville, 1870: Canvas Replica Painting: Large
Item#DA3843
By artist Claude Monet (1840-1926), in the Musee d'Orsay, Paris
This painting is a study in using perspective to fully draw the viewer into the work. The perspective lines converge to a remarkably close center, and Monet intensifies this effect through the use of sun and shadow on the hotel walls. The overall goal is to draw the viewer fully into the work, as if the viewer himself was strolling along the French coast enjoying the beautiful day. Imagine the indignation of the French Salon over the unfinished nature of the French flag that dominates the initial impression of this painting! The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
Large: 28.25"Wx37.25"H. framed (20.25"Wx29.25"H. image size, 4"W. frame)

   Claude Monet (1840-1926)




Claude Monet's paintings are considered to be exemplary of the philosophy of Impressionism, which was to show one's perceptions before nature. The term Impressionism is derived from Monet's painting, Impression, Sunrise and Monet himself was a founder of French Impressionism painting.

Claude Monet was born on November 14, 1840 in Paris, but moved to the port town of Le Havre when he was 5 years old. For much of his childhood, Monet was considered by his parents and teachers to be undisciplined and, therefore, unlikely to succeed in life. He enjoyed creating caricatures and by the age of 15, was receiving commission for his work. Fellow artist Eugene Boudin taught young Monet the en plein air techniques for painting. He was the in initiator, leader and unswerving advocate of the Impressionist style that can be seen in paintings such as Bordighera. Monet's paintings such as Nympheus and Water Lilies at Giverny were inspired by his home and garden in Giverny. He was buried in a nearby cemetery after succumbing to lung cancer in 1926.
