Product Description
Claude Monet Notecard Folio
Although early critics dismissed his paintings as hasty sketches, Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926) would soon become one of the world’s most celebrated painters. A central and influential figure among the French impressionists, Monet devoted himself to capturing on canvas the nuances of light’s play across the sky, water, and land. Working quickly—sometimes on multiple canvases at once—to record his “impression” of a scene before atmospheric conditions changed, Monet often found his self-appointed task incredibly frustrating. “What a confounded profession is mine,” he said. “No matter what beautiful things I see, it’s far too difficult.” Yet he persevered, inspiring his contemporaries and producing some of modern art’s most enduring paintings.

The paintings included in this folio were produced during Monet’s time in Argenteuil, a small village situated near Paris along the Seine. Here, from 1871 to 1878, Monet created some of his best-known works, including scenes of the flower-filled terrace and portraits of his family.

The two paintings reproduced here are from the extraordinary holdings of the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, home to one of the world’s finest private collections of French impressionist, post-impressionist, and early modern art.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Madame Monet Embroidering, 1875
Girl with Dog, 1873
