There Was This Painter, See…
Thursday, December 2, 2010
Claude Monet, recognized as the founder of the French Impressionist movement of the late 1800’s, installed this garden and pond with the specific intent of using it as a living canvas from which he would paint. It is perhaps the most incredibly inviting and comforting garden I’ve ever experienced. In arranging my vacation plans for traveling to France, above all other constructs and monuments, I had to see this with my own eyes to more firmly understand Monet’s paintings. This was especially important for me, an optician of 20 years, and given that Monet’s later works were heavily affected by his deteriorating vision due to cataract formation.
