Paris exhibited: Monet

Autoportrait

*

I thought I knew Monet. I thought he only used off-putting pastel colours, I thought he was classic and I thought he was boring. Well, I was wrong and I was caught by surprised by Monet’s incredible way of seeing things, his instinctive approach to lights and his modern use of colours. Some paintings even moved me and I had to be dragged away from a cliff landscape!

Once I got back home I went on the internet to try and find the paintings I most liked but I was very disappointed to realize that none of the pixelized pictures could pass on the same emotion as the magnificent canvas did then.

I uploaded some below but I urge you to go to Paris’s Grand Palais and feel them.
