This painting is a study in using perspective to fully draw the viewer into the work. The perspective lines converge to a remarkably close center, and Monet intensifies this effect through the use of sun and shadow on the hotel walls. The overall goal is to draw the viewer fully into the work, as if the viewer himself was strolling along the French coast enjoying the beautiful day. Imagine the indignation of the French Salon over the unfinished nature of the French flag that dominates the initial impression of this painting! 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.
