Speechless Sunday with Claude Monet's Water Lilies in Brilliant Fall Colors

By
Real Estate Agent with David Weekley Homes

 

This is another one of Claude Monet’s Water Lilies paintings. I thought I would post this one today as to me it has many of the beautiful colors of autumn. Claude Monet is one of the most important painters of the impressionist period.  One of his favorite subjects was his Water Lilies series at his beloved home in Giverny.

          This painting is in the Musee D L’Orangerie in Paris, France. The museum is located in the Tuileries Park which is located at the Bank of the Seine River close to the Place de la Concorde. Claude Monet specifically singled out this museum to permanently display these masterpieces.

Yolanda:  What a beautiful painting, and what a great way to start a Sunday Afternoon.  Monet was such a master with color.

And as far as David Weekley is concerned... I have sold several of his homes here in the Fort Worth area.  I met David years ago... in the 1980's.  He is quite a guy, and in my area... his homes are always in demand.

Hi, Yolanda -- what a beautiful image.  I got a chance to once see the Musee d'Orsay, in Paris, where most of the key impressionistic works are housed.   It is amazing to think that the key Impressionists had trouble selling their work, at the time it was first being created.  Have a great day, Eric

Eric - Eric I too have been to the Musee d' Orsay and it is wonderful. You need to this museum if you get a chance.
