I am a big fan of the Impressionistic artists and Mr. Monet, is but one of them. The Toledo Ohio Museum of Art, has some of his works in the holdings and they are joy to view.
“Claude Monet’s artistic personality developed in Le Havre, where he grew up and spent his childhood. The impressions he gained in the Channel coast, were decisive for his choice of themes, which were much in connection with water. Beaches and harbors, sailing boats, which crossed the coast, can visually see that Monet loved the water. “Ideally I would always be at or on the sea and when I die, I want to be buried in a buoy,” Monet once said to have emphasized."
