Camille Monet -1847-1879- in the Garden at Argenteuil.
Painting - Oil On Canvas
Camille Monet (1847-1879) in the Garden at Argenteuil. Artist: Claude Monet (French, Paris 1840-1926 Giverny). Dimensions: 32 1/8 x 23 5/8 in. (81.6 x 60 cm). Date: 1876.
In 1876, Monet made no less than ten paintings of his rented house and garden at Argenteuil. This canvas may be among the ones he painted in June, when he was working on "a series of rather interesting new things." Madame Monet seems incidental in comparison to the impressive stand of hollyhocks in the middle of the composition. Flickering brushstrokes of brightly colored paint make the canvas appear to pulsate with light. Museum: Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA.
