Claude Monet- Cliff Walk at Pourville

This painting is done by Claude Monet, it is called Cliff Walk at Pourville and it was done in 1882. Most of Monet's paintings have inspired by nature.  His brush strokes are not clear but combine to make an amazing work of art.  I choose this painting because I first it remind me of my home town on Long Island. Monet has been called the epic poetic artist.  His paintings are beautiful and the color usage is what I admire most in his art work.  This particular painting is in the Art Institute in Chicago. In this painting he depicts Alice Hoschede and one of her daughters looking out toward the sea.
