Did you know?

Monet painted 35 canvases during his visit to Antibes from January to May 1888.


Monet painted this view of a gardener’s house during a five-month stay at Antibes in southern France. Under the Mediterranean sun his colors became lighter, his paint surfaces more thickly impastoed. “What I bring back from here,” he wrote, “will be sweetness itself, white, pink, and blue, all enveloped in a magical air.” The strong colors and heavy paint surfaces seem drenched in intense light and heat of the Mediterranean coast.
