Virtual Gallery - Room 4

The latest artist to get a room in my virtual gallery is Monet. The great impressionist painter, Monet's work is best seen in real life - I never feel prints do full justice to the pictures and the techniques employed. Still, in the absence of the real thing, prints will suffice.

There were many pictures I could have chosen for this gallery but have gone for some of my favourites. Enjoy!

From top to bottom:
  • Impression - Sunrise (1872)
  • The Houses of Parliament (Effect of Fog) (1903-1904)
  • The Studio Boat (1874)
  • Haystacks: Snow Effect (1891)
  • Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies (1899)
For more on Monet, see here. Click here for an interactive tour of The Orangerie and perhaps the most famous of Monet's Water Lily paintings.
