Claude Monet 1840-1926
Oil on Canvas
Framed size 90cm x 78cm
In early 1886 Monet painted 36 seascapes at Belle-Ile, an island off Brittany. There is no human presense in any of the paintings. He completed them in his studio at Giverny over the next few months.
These paintings astounded the Paris art world when he first exhibited them in 1887.
Monet signed his paintings when completed with the last colour he was using on his brush.
