The Luncheon, Monet's Garden at Argenteuil, 1873: Canvas Replica Painting: Medium
Item#DA3882
By artist Claude Monet (1840-1926), in the Musee d'Orsay, Paris
The comfortable informality of Monet's life at Argenteuil during this happy summer shines through in the details of this painting. The meal here is finished and Camille can be seen walking through the gardens with a companion while their son, Jean, sits in the shade of the table and plays with his blocks. The ease of the afternoon is captured in the breeze ruffling Camille's skirts, the sun-dappled still life in the center of the painting, and the hat that seems to be carelessly hung in the branches of the tree. 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, 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.

   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.
