Regatta at Argenteuil

Artist: Auguste Renoir (1841-1919)

The series on Monet will continue this Sunday, focusing on Argenteuil where the artist spent most of the 1870s, creating some of his most iconic Impressionist works of art. His friend and colleague Renoir would visit Claude, Camille and their son in their rented home in Argenteuil, spending time also interpreting the movement of sailboats on the Seine River as in the National Gallery of Art painting above.

COMING SOON: Monet’s backyard and garden!
