The Artist's Garden at Vetheuil, 1880: Medium
By artist Claude Monet (1840-1926) in a Private Collection
Monet planted gardens wherever he lived and in his rented home in Vetheuil, he made arrangements with the landlord to landscape the terraces that led to the Seine. On the path, brilliant sunlight and dappled shade briefly reflect the faces of Monet's young son and members of his extended household amidst the large flowerpots the artist took to each home in which he ever lived. 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. With bas-relief organic styling, the multi-tiered, replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with an aged gold-toned finish.
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.
