Копия Клода Моне..."натюрморт с дыней" 50х70 Помню , ещё в далёком 2000г. влюбилась в творчество Клода Моне... , и особенно в этот натюрморт.., и копировала его несколько раз (даже не помню сколько), и дарила его учителям, друзьям и врачам..
Первую такую мою копию увёз тогда мой друг в Амстердам и там продал её, те деньги пошли мне на пошив свадебного наряда...
А эта работа сейчас на выставке..
There’s a great body of literature that you could look back on. And because there are probably still members of the family that exist, you have a much greater responsibility and, I suppose, less freedom to do your own thing, so it was a good challenge.” #richardarmitage#claudemonet
Monet not only left behind his wonderful paintings, but a large collection of letters and records of interviews, used in the creation of the series. Richard Armitage was aware of the benefits and demands such a role entails. #richardarmitage#claudemonet
I start my post ironically with a picture, which was given to @albertinamuseum from @theartsmuseum for a wonderful Claude Monet Retrospektive - Boulevard of Capucines (1873).
Until 6th of January you still have a chance to catch this highlight of the season, where 100 pieces give a full and detailed representation of this world-famous impressionistic talent.
Monet was rarely depicting people, since he opened outside painting: light, colors and nature were main lines of his creativity.
This exhibition gave me an opportunity to see some rare examples of his portrait work.
Also, need to be noticed: the dramatical eyesight loss, almost blindness of the artist is wonderfully represented in the last hall of the exhibition space. That’s where you see Monet in his almost childish clearness of form and color; impressions of his surroundings in his house in Giverny (not far away from Paris), where the artist spent 43 years of his life until his death.
The moment Monet’s wife left, her very last tenderness stayed forever on Monet’s painting, along with his lovely signature, which is the only one that Monet signed with his soft heart. “Now the only girl I've ever loved has gone away. Little does she know that when she left that day. Along with her she took my heart.” What an affectionate Claude Monet.

Day #16 , happy 3d advent! Today, we will present you #claudemonet , who a world-famous French artist.
Claude Monet’s paintings, especially his series „the water lilies“ are world-famous.
But who was Claude Monet and what was his life like?
Monet raised in Le Havre, a city at the northwest-coast of France. Already as a student, his caricatures were famous. As a teenager, he met the canvas trader Eugène Boudin, who motivated Monet to paint outside in the open air.
When he moved to Paris in order to study art, Monet met the artists Pissaro, Bazille, Renois et Sisley. Together they founded an artist community, that we consider nowadays as the founders of impressionism.
Monets work „impression, sunrise“, which he published 1874 in an exposition, presents the birth of the arte movement called impressionism. Despite that, his paintings got a lot of criticism because of the gross style of painting. Although this should help to express the realistic impression of the moment, and especially of the light, his paintings seemed to be as unfinished, like a sketch.
Only 1883 Monet hat the chance to have his own exhibition in London. From the money he made, he bought his house in Giverny – a small village between Paris and the northern french region Normandy. The beautiful garden, which he designed precisely by his own, was an inspiration for his most famous paintings.
You can still visit his house and his garden in Giverny, the village is accessible in around 1 hour from Paris – per train, as well as by car. Especially in the springtime, the colorful flowerage will amaze you.
I haven’t posted in a little while... I’m having a hard time back home and don’t feel like I do anything worth capturing.
I’ve been meaning to share my photos of Monet’s garden from my visit to France but had too many to choose from... so here’s one for now.
