The Bridge at Argenteuil, 1874: Canvas Replica Painting: Large
By artist Claude Monet (1840-1926), in the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.
At casual glance, this piece evokes the idyllic image of the pleasure boats on the Seine for which Argenteuil was famous. Upon closer inspection, the viewer is treated to insight into Monet's mastery of color and light, produced using brilliant, unblended tones of blue, red, green and yellow. Brushwork texture brings the lapping surface of the water and the movement of breezes through the trees to vivid life. 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. 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.

   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.
