Monet's Garden at Argenteuil (The Dahlias), 1873: Canvas Replica Painting: Small
Item#DA3921
By artist Claude Monet (1840-1926), in the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.
Monet's inventive and beautiful garden landscaping was often the subject of his paintings. Here we see a glorious explosion of dahlias in his gardens at Argenteuil. Argenteuil was the artists first home after he found some financial success, and the gardens at this home were a precursor to the expansive and ingenious gardens he would later construct at Giverny. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. With bas-relief organic styling, the multi-tiered, replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with an aged gold-toned finish.
Small: 15"Wx12.5"H. framed (8.5"Wx6"H. image size, 3.25"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.
