Arts Everyday Living: Through the Eyes of Monet & Other Artists-Love of Sailing, Wind & Water


Claude Monet, Sailboats at Argenteuil, 1874, oil on canvas, Private Collection


Seeing the world through an artist’s eyes expands and enhances our experience of daily life.  What do you think of the difference between the interpretations of sailboats by French master Claude Monet (1840-1926) and American early Modernist Charles Demuth (1883-1935)?  Decades separate these works of art, Monet’s Sailboats at Argenteuil representing the Impressionist style, while Demuth’s Sail in Two Movements is influenced by the Cubist movement.


Charles Demuth, Sail in Two Movements, 1919, medium uncertain, Private Collection?
