The Rue Montorgueil in Paris, 1878: Canvas Replica Painting: Grande
Item#DA4024
By artist Claude Monet (1840-1926), Musee d'Orsay, Paris
Two years before France's official National Day was declared in 1880, the country celebrated its recovery from the defeat of 1870 with a patriotic day of "peace and work." Monet obliged with a vibrantly hued masterwork alive with small strokes of color that suggest the animation of the crowd and the waving of flags. 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.
Grande: 36.25"Wx49.25"H. framed (28.25"Wx41.25"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.
