    If you can't make it to the beach this winter, take a trip to room C213 of our European art galleries. In A Stormy Sea c. 1884, Claude Monet has employed a variety of brush techniques to capture the motion of the sea and surf: long, horizontal strokes are used for the distant open sea, while vibrant swirls and dashes depict the waves breaking at the shore. He usually began his paintings of outdoor subjects on the spot—en plein air—and at times finished them in the studio.

    After having left Argenteuil in 1878, Monet eventually moves his family to Giverny, in 1883, including his son Michel and step-son Jean-Pierre who are seen standing on the banks of the Epte River, near their home. 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.” In room C213 of our European Art galleries: Jean-Pierre Hoschedé and Michel Monet on the Banks of the l’Epte, c. 1887-1890, oil on canvas, gift of the Saidye Bronfman Foundation, 1995
