Claude Monet⁣ The Studio Boat (Le Bateau-atelier)⁣ 1876⁣ “Monet bought the old fishing boat in 1872 soon after moving to Argenteuil. In his own words he said "a fair wind had brought me just enough money in one go to buy a boat and have a wooden cabin built on it just big enough to set up an easel". The floating studio enable him to paint views from the River Seine in the Argenteuil district that were otherwise inaccessible, commencing with a series of paintings of the sailing boats at Petit-Gennevilliers. ⁣ Monet lived by his beloved Seine throughout his life and painted his studio boat on several occasions, both at Argenteuil and at Giverny, where he later lived. He was also pictured by his friend and protegé Edouard Manet working on the boat in 1874 in the company of his wife Camille.”⁣ (The Barnes Foundation) #paintings #painting #artlovers #famousartists #famousart #artlegends #masterpieceart #artmasterpieces #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove #claudemonet #monet #thestudioboat #lebateauatelier
