Seattle Art Museum (SAM) Exhibit
This exhibit is displayed at the Seattle Art Museum through October 17, 2021. Paintings by Monet and his contemporizes of the landscape at Étretat, France, during February 1883. Étretat is a fishing village and resort on the Normandy coast. I am adding the Normandy Coast to my bucket list.
Claude Monet was a painter from France and the founding father of Impressionism for painting. Monet is known for his landscape paintings.
It has been close to two years since I visited the SAM, due to the Covid virus. It was a welcomed treat and joy to see this exhibit. I snapped photos only of Monet’s paintings. These were my favorite paintings from the Exhibit.
It is extraordinary to see the sea; what a spectacle! She is so unfettered that one wonders whether it is possible that she again become calm.
Etretat is becoming more and more amazing. Now is the real moment: the beach with all its fine boats; it is superb, and I am enraged not to be more skillful in rendering all this. I would need two hands and hundreds of canvases.Claude Monet
