The English Channel on France’s northwest coast is dotted with charming beaches and towns.. Claude Monet painted these beaches in the late 1800′s, capturing their people, landmarks, rocky cliffs, and distinctive light. 53 banners are now available featuring Monet’s The Beach at Trouville from the San Francisco showing of Monet in Normandy.
Claude Monet is known for his thick use of paint, light-infused landscapes, and lively urban scenes. Monet is also admired for the beach scenes he painted along the coasts of Normandy. In these works he explored not only the views of sea, sky and land, but the varied views of beachgoers enjoying a day a la plage. 14 banners from The Phillips Collection feature a detail of a woman under a parasol enjoying a relaxing day on Trouville’s beaches.
