Fisherman’s Cottage on the Cliffs at Varengeville, 1882 Art Glass Panel
By artist Claude Monet (1840-1926) in a Private Collection
Monet's imagery nearly dissolved into the sensations of light and color as he painted this scene of a Fisherman’s Cottage on the Cliffs at Varengeville. The shimmering sunlight on the water, the vibrant green of the trees on the banks and the perfection of the sky itself give us the sense, more than the literal facts, of an idyllic summer day. This art glass, also called stained glass, is created by a unique technique of fusing hand-rolled architectural glass with unique transparent enamels, then kiln fired at temperatures above 1100 degrees Fahrenheit so the colors actually become part of the glass. The shades and hues will stay bright and glowing with radiant color and provide a stunning view from either side. The art glass window is framed in zinc with a hanging chain for window display and a tabletop easel stand to enjoy this treasured piece in any room.
- Window includes acrylic display stand and 9" long chain with snap hooks for hanging.
- Hanging hardware not included.
- Design Toscano is not responsible for damages due to failed hangers and/or improper installation.
About The Artist
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 five years old. For much of his childhood Monet was considered by both his parents and his teachers to be undisciplined and therefore unlikely to succeed in life. He enjoyed creating caricatures and by the age of fifteen was receiving commission for his work. Fellow artist Eugene Boudin taught young Monet the en plein air (outdoor) 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.
Later Monet paintings show his maturing method of producing several studies of the same motif in a series where he changed the canvases with the light or as his interest shifted. He painted Haystacks in varying degrees of light the Seine and eventually his Garden at Giverny. He was especially fond of painting these controlled scenes of nature.
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 cemetary after succumbing to lung cancer in 1926.

Caring for your Stained Art Glass:
Any irregularities in your work of art from Glassmasters are inherent in the nature of fine stained glass. Streaking bubbling and striations are characteristic of the hand-rolling process used by glassmakers in the Middle Ages. After the enamels are applied to the glass they are kiln-fired to become one with the glass. Because the colors are part of the glass your Glassmasters stained glass has a lifetime warranty against fading and discoloration. The stained glass may be cleaned with any mild cleaning solution that does not contain any abrasives or acid. Use a soft cloth to dry and polish the surface.
