Waterlillies, 1914: Canvas Replica Painting: Medium
Item#DA1902
By artist Claude Monet (1840-1926), in a Private Collection
Rapid loops of paint, augmented by rough patches, curls and flecks of color borrow the gleam of reflected clouds to unfold into the splendor of waterlilies that have made Monet's beloved obsession world renown. Inspired by his collection of Japanese prints, Monet created a water garden in his home in Giverny, France, that was to become a work of art in and of itself and the muse for this masterpiece in particular. 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. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones.
Medium: 27.5"Wx27.5"H. framed (19.5"Wx19.5"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.
