#50 - The Japanese Footbridge (Le Pont Japonais) by Claude Monet

As with all his 'water lilies' paintings, The Japanese Footbridge
demonstrates the extraordinary ability of Monet to capture the exquisite color and light
found in the ponds that grace the property of his home in Giverny. As
arguably the most successful and famous of the French Impressionists, this
brilliantly talented artist was renowned not only for his paintings drenched in the
fresh and clear beauty of nature's splendor, but also for his horticultural
skills. Monet's elegant gardens in Argenteuil and Giverny have become a part of
France's cultural heritage, even as his memorable paintings have become the
hallmark of Western art.
In his signature style, the artist employed the technique of broken color
which creates a vision of trembling jewel tones and vibrating light. In one
of the most beloved of his 'water lilies' series, the Japanese Footbridge,
housed in the National Gallery of Art, painted white flowers, whose fragrance one
can almost smell, sit gently on languid lily pads of pinks and greens amongst
surrounding of saturated browns and greens upon the tranquil surface of the
lily pond. Our fine artists have translated the beauty of this scene into an
oversized chart so that you can recreate this priceless treasure with the maximum
of ease and enjoyment.

#49 - The River by Claude Monet

In this exquisite work, The River, the incomparable Claude
Monet (pronounced Monay), has captured the effects of the morning sun as it reflects off the
water's surface and filters through the trees on shore. With wife, Camille,
and son in tow, Monet settled in a small village on the Seine during the Spring
of 1868. It is there that he painted The River. Focusing on the effects of
light on the forms and masses in nature, the fluid and variable surface of the
river Seine mirrors houses, trees, and hills in sparkling colors. To the
bottom left of the picture, a pensive Camille becomes one with this shimmering
environment. Dematerialized in a striped pattern of light and dark folds of
silk, her bonnet resting on the grass, Camille sits by the boat that Monet
sometimes used when painting the Seine from a point out on the river.
This universally acclaimed picture is housed in the Art Institute of
Chicago, where The River continues to delight art lovers. Our team of artists has
translated this vivid painting into an oversized chart so that you can
recreate this priceless treasure with equal poetry.
