Monet and his wife once fled Paris to escape their creditors. Their son Jean — seven years-old in this painting — became seriously ill due to their inability pay for his medical treatment. After the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War they sought refuge in England and the Netherlands.

By 1875, however, their fortunes had changed. They had returned to France, renting a house in Argenteuil, a suburb northwest of Paris. Monet had met the art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel in London, and through him their finances were growing. In Argenteuil he was embarked upon one of the most formative creative periods of his life, gaining new insights into the effects of light and color on objects, and the juxtaposition of colors with each other.

Also known as The Stroll, Woman with Parasol – Madame Monet and Her Son was conceived as a genre painting, rather than a portrait, depicting a mother and son on a summer’s outing. Here, Monet’s calligraphic brushwork and advanced color theory combine to create a flawless impression of a bright and windy day, made all the more remarkable by the fact that the entire scene was probably captured in a single plein air session of just a few hours.

Monet once said that he liked to paint “as the bird sings.” This is one of his high notes.

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.
