The Seine at Lavacourt
754 x 510 • 82 KB
This painting represents conventional rules in the art - a strong horizontal axis with a triangular centre made up of the trees and their reflection in the water. This composition investes the picture with a calm and refined order. The final studio canvas was probably produced after a preliminary outdoor sketch. Monet painted many scenes in the area of Lavacourt.

Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
