Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926) Poplars on the Epte, 1891 Through the spring, summer, and fall of 1891, Claude Monet floated a boat down the river near his home at Giverny to paint its poplars. At one point, faced with losing his subjects to a timber merchant, he purchased the trees so he could continue painting. His Poplars on the Epte became part of a series in which Monet documented the fleeting effects of sunlight on the water, with poplars following the curve of the river single file toward the Seine. Monet’s brilliance in expressing light and movement is celebrated in this 500-piece puzzle.
Monet, too. Ahhh, so tranquil.
As with the original Monet- the colors melt into each other and are very challenging to separate. Great attention to detail. Am having my puzzle framed!
Enjoy the puzzle as it was exciting and fun.
This was a challenging puzzle, but it was so beautiful when I finished it that it was totally worth it. I'm sure that I will do it again sometime soon!
Love the Pomegranate puzzle. Very nice pieces.
