DescriptionSunflowers have been the subject of artistic expression throughout history. The sunflowers harvested for Claude Monet’s (French, 1840–1926) lush Bouquet of Sunflowers flanked the steps that led down to Monet's garden at Vétheuil. He exhibited this painting in 1882 at the seventh Impressionist exhibition, where the brio and daring of his technique elicited the critics' admiration. Our Monet Sunflowers Note Cube with Drawer design reproduces the exuberance of the bouquet.

Art HistoryClaude Monet (French, 1840–1926) was a key figure in the Impressionist movement that transformed French painting in the second half of the nineteenth century. Throughout his long career, Monet consistently depicted the landscape and leisure activities of Paris, as well as the Normandy coast. He found subjects in his immediate surroundings, as he painted the people and places he knew best. His first wife, Camille, and his second wife, Alice, frequently served as models, and his property at Giverny inspired many of his later paintings. Monet led the way to twentieth-century modernism by developing a unique style that strove to capture on canvas the very act of perceiving nature.
