La Japonaise Bookmark
Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926)
La Japonaise (Camille Monet in Japanese Costume) , 1876

It is the world’s good fortune that Claude Monet disappointed his father, a prosperous merchant who wanted his son to take up the family business. Along with a life in commerce, Monet rejected the Academic tradition in which “proper” paintings equaled fiction, history, and religious votives. His subjects were his surroundings. Monet devoted himself to the pursuit and capture of light’s effects on sky, water, and land. Painting quickly to get his “impressions” on canvas before the sunlight’s angle shifted too much, he produced a truthful, purely personal record of the beautiful world he saw before him.
