Having been transfixed by his lily ponds at Giverny, Monet was awestruck on arriving in Venice on October 1, 1908: “It is too beautiful to be painted! It is untranslatable!” he exclaimed. Whereas most European artists who visited Venice did so early in their careers, Monet was making his first and only trip age of 68, bringing with him a lifetime of artistic experience.

Determined to make an original statement, Monet focused less upon the storied architecture than the Venetian light and haze, the reflections of its buildings on the shimmering waters of the Grand Canal. Repeating many of the same views under different conditions, he strove to capture the surrounding atmosphere, or what he called the “envelope.” “To me the motif was an insignificant factor,” he said, “What I want is to reproduce what exists between the motif and me.”

During his ten weeks’ stay in Venice he began thirty-seven canvases, which he later completed in his studio. When twenty-nine of these were put on exhibit at the Bernheim-Jeune gallery in Paris, they enjoyed enormous success, Paul Signac writing warmly to Monet “of the joy of seeing a large part of your newest works,” which “I admire…as the highest expression of your art.”

Product Information

Expect crisp detail and vivid color from our giclée process fine art prints. We use archival pigment inks on cotton fiber paper to achieve a wide color gamut, deep blacks and beautiful tonal transitions. Unlike posters, they will not fade or yellow, but maintain their original quality for as long as you own them.

How to Frame

Historical artworks were produced in whatever shapes and sizes best suited the artists and their patrons, and these rarely correspond to the proportions of modern, mass-produced frames. Most reproductions sold on the web are cropped to an arbitrary standard, compromising the integrity of the original artwork. We solve this by using accent borders to make up any differences in proportion.

Framing may be as simple as inserting the print into a standard size frame with the borders showing. In many cases, our customers choose to have them matted. Borders allow space for framers to mount the print while covering little, if any, of the artwork. Our images are sized to provide desirable mat widths in common frames.

Sizes 9” x 12”, 12” x 16”, and 16” x 20” are designed to be matted in larger frames, such as 11” x 14”, 16” x 20” and 20” x 24”, respectively. Larger prints may be matted in frames of equal size, the borders corresponding to the shape of the mat. Where the artwork is unusually square or narrow, other sizes may be preferred.

If our sizing does not meet your requirements, we provide customization free of charge. Please contact us to discuss the details.
