Claude Monet

Jean-Pierre Hoschedé and Michel Monet on the Bank of the Epte

c. 1887-1890
Monet’s son Michel and stepson Jean-Pierre stand on the bank of the Epte River near their home at Giverny, where the artist and his family moved in 1883. There, Monet gradually became less interested in Impressionism’s precise recording of natural phenomena, endeavouring instead “to reproduce something that exists between the subject and myself, the beauty of the air, something wholly unattainable.”
