La Japonaise, 1876: Canvas Replica Painting: Grande
By artist Claude Monet (1840-1926), in a Private Collection
In a blond wig and a splendidly embellished kimono, Monet's wife Camille models for the artist's witty comment on late 19th century Parisians' love for all things Japanese. This large-scale figure portrait is quite different from the body of the artist's Impressionist work. 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 frame is cast in quality designer resin in a deep ebony hue highlighted by a faux mat and a classic, understated border in an antique gold finish.
Grande: 30.25"Wx46.75"H. framed (24"Wx40.5"H. image size, 3.125"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.
