Claude Monet: La Japonaise 1000-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926)
La Japonaise (Camille Monet in Japanese Costume),
Large-scale figure paintings are a significant challenge for an artist. Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926) exceeded expectations with his painting La Japonaise,
a virtuoso display of brilliant color that also made a witty comment on the mid–nineteenth-century Paris fad for all things Japanese. The subject of Monet’s painting is his wife, Camille; surrounded by Japanese fans, she is wrapped in a splendid kimono and wears a blond wig that emphasizes her Western identity. Monet exhibited this work in 1876 at the Impressionists’ second group show, where it attracted considerable attention.
