Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926) lived in Vétheuil, a village northwest of Paris, from 1878 to 1881. In the summer of 1880 he painted 26 views of the area around the village, including two views of the Île aux Fleurs (Island of Flowers) in the Seine. One of these works is in the Metropolitan Museum’s collection. In this version, Monet’s quickly applied brushstrokes in the foreground create a bold, abstract pattern that lessens the sense of distance to the opposite riverbank. A detail of this canvas has been adapted for our sheer tunic.
