Art vase is made from kiln-fired ceramic, color and gloss finish, and measures 7.5 in H x 4 in W x 2.5 in D. Weight 0.8 lbs. PN SDA07.
This vase is part of an art vase collection called Silhouette d'Art. It is crafted from fine ceramic and decorated with a famous masterpiece painting. Vases are a cooperative effort between two European fine art manufacturers -- Parastone, a Dutch Art Company, and John Beswick, a British ceramic company. The famous art masterpieces are selected for their visual beauty and then applied to a special shaped vase design with a cut edge to enhance a design element from the painting.
Claude Monet (1840-1926)
Monet is considered one of the founding fathers of Impressionism. The term is even derived from his painting Impression, Soleil Levantdated 1872. At age 22, Monet, disappointed with traditional art education in Le Havre, moved to Paris. He took lessons from Charles Gleyre, where he met Renoir, Bazille and Sisley. The group were strongly opposed to classicism. They wanted to capture the fleeting light, with rapid brushstrokes and in elementary colors without worrying about the exactness of the representation of shapes. They worked en plein air in French which means outdoors (which had become possible because paint was now available in tubes). Daily life was depicted without symbolism or an underlying message.
Water Lilies Painting by Monet (1908)
From 1883 onwards, Monet lived in the village of Giverny and worked on a series of paintings which depicted the same subjects in varying light and weather conditions. The subject of one of these series was the pond with water lilies in his own garden, which he painted over 250 times.
