The artist was a mere 23 or 24 years old when he completed this work that attracted immediate attention. The forest of Fontainebleau is rendered in the fading light of dusk and brilliantly compensates for a lack of detail with a generous gift of autumn's blazing color. 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.
  • 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.
