Did you know?

The Seine River, especially the mid-Seine valley where Claude Monet lived, is known for being a source of inspiration and subject matter for Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists.


Although this scene was once thought to have been painted by Eugéne Boudin (1824–1898), its creator has yet to be identified.
