Monet



Towards the end of his career, Claude Monet was practically blind. He despaired that his great work, his water lilies series, which now hang in the Orangerie in Paris, was worthless. His imagery of his beautiful water garden, which was his sole subject for many years, really presages the abstract art of the 20th century. This portrait was made from a photograph of Monet in his garden during the last years of his life.

This image was etched onto a copper plate, inked with black and run through my etching press. It is an editioned work of art printed on all cotton archival quality paper.
