A Farmyard in Normandy - Claude Monet Canvas
The French Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) is known for his paintings of landscapes and gardens, such as the iconic paintings of the French village of Giverny. In his early career, Monet spent time living in London and then Paris, and many of his early paintings were of scenes from London. In 1883, Monet moved to Giverny, a small village about 30 miles from Paris, and began painting scenes of the village and its surroundings. In 1892, Monet purchased a house and garden in Giverny, where he spent the rest of his life. He was so attached to the village that he always called it by its French name, "Giverny." In 1899, Monet purchased a farm just outside of Giverny and began to spend time there as well. The farm is now a museum, the Claude Monet Foundation, which features a number of Monet's paintings from the 1890s. This particular painting is a view of the farm from the courtyard of the house. The painting captures the light and the lushness of the summer landscape. The buildings and animals are dwarfed by the wide open space.
