    Claude Monet - Mia Feigelson's FB Gallery MONET & ABSTRACTION I can understand that many of you prefer Monet's quintessential Impressionist Works. But if it not were for the ones he had made from the beginning of the 1900's until his death, he would never have been able to influence future artists, particularly Abstract Artists. This set of works were his legacy to those who came after him, above all, to mid 20-th century painters who embraced Abstract Art. "Waterloo Bridge, the sun in a fog" (1903) By Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926) oil on canvas; 73.7 x 100.3 cm Place of creation: London, UK © National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa Purchased, 1914 © Estate of Claude Monet / ADAGP (Paris) / SODRAC (Montréal) http://www.gallery.ca/en/ https://www.facebook.com/nationalgallerycanada Read more: http://1.usa.gov/1IguXFZ #Monet #WaterlooBridge #London #PostImpressionism #French #cityscape
