The Artist’s House at Argenteuil
Argenteuil was an enclave of French impressionist art in the late nineteenth century. Claude Monet and other masters of the movement brought their vision and technique to the quiet suburb on the outskirts of Paris, exploring in new ways the effects of shadow and light that played near its bridges, railroads, and country roads. With a genius for color relationships, Monet shows here a fragment of the front yard of his home at Argenteuil with exceptional grace and luminosity.
