No 72 Claude Monet


“It’s enough to drive you crazy, trying to depict the weather, the atmosphere, the ambience.”  Claude Monet

I was reading an article about Amazon now selling fine art. I loved the following paragraph:

“Meanwhile, spoof customer reviews gently deflated the listing of Monet’s
portrait L’Enfant à la tasse, priced at $1.85m, with apparently
disgruntled buyers complaining: “BUYER BEWARE: THIS ITEM IS IN FRENCH. There is
no English version. I purchased this product and couldn’t understand a word of
it.” Or, “My friend Dionne advised me against buying a Monet, and I should have
listened. From far away, it’s okay, but up close it’s a big old mess.””

    I would like to think it’s not quite enough, but perhaps that’s for others to decide.

  2. Yes . . . but in a good way?

    The postmistress takes her ducks for a run . . . why wouldn't you on such a day? http://www.andrewherridge— Andrew Herridge Art (@ULikeArt2) August 27, 2013
