An archival premium Quality art Print of Garden at Sainte Adresse painted by French Impressionist Artist, Claude Monet in 1867 for sale by Brandywine General Store. Monet spent the summer of 1867 at the resort town of Sainte-Adresse on the English Channel near Le Havre, France. It was here in this garden, with a view of Honfleur on the horizon that the scene was painted for this picture. The models were probably Monet's father, Adolphe, who is in the foreground. Monet's cousin Jeanne Marguerite Lacadre is at the fence and her father and possibly her sister are the other 2 models. The garden belonged to Monet's aunt who had a seaside villa near the port of Le Havre. Monet called this work "the Chinese painting in which there are flags", while his friend Renoir referred to it as "the Japanese painting". Using pure colors that contrast strongly, Monet captures the almost painful brightness of the sunlight reflecting off the sea. Today we take these bright colors for granted, but in Monet's era, his contemporaries were shocked by the almost crude brightness. The size of this original oil on canvas is 98 by 130 cm and was acquired by the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art from an auction sale held by Christie's in December 1967. Famous Artists print #30
