GM1109 - Monet Fisherman's Cottage
Size: 7 x 9" tableau
Artist: Claude Monet
Monet was the founder of Impressionism, and was one of the most influential landscape painters in the history of art.
When painting outdoor scenes, he broke the tradition of portraying a subject by conveying the effects of atmosphere, time of day, and season upon color and light. By eliminating black and gray from his palette, he represented natural color like a prism, breaking it down into its individual components, often painting a series of the exact same view under different light and weather conditions. Masterswork's recreation of this work attempts to capture Monet's vision of this seascape scene.
