Claude Monet (in 1882)

Ask anything

  • Karen Tripson asked

    What landscape did Monet paint the most times?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Karen, pooh that's some question! My guess would be the water-lily pond in his garden, but I have to admit I've never counted them. Best, Rianne

  • Mats Andersson asked

    Hi! Is "La Maison du pêcheur, Varengeville" at the same spot as MoMA's "On the Cliff at Pourville, Clear Weather", the MET's "Cabin of the Customs Watch" and National Museum's "View over the Sea"? The three latter paintings are supposed to be painted in the neighbouring village Pourville. Thanks! Mats

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Mats, Monet painted 14 versions of this motif at Pourville in 1882. The painting in the collection of the MoMA and the National Museum are at the same spot, which is different from the spot depicted in the painting from our collection. Because we cannot see the cabin in those two paintings. The spot depicted in the painting of the MET looks a lot like the one in Boijmans. However, the painting in Boijmans was made in Varengeville while as the other one is made in Pourville. Those two places are very close to each other. Best, Lisa

More information

Monet liked repeating certain subjects. He saw this fisherman’s cottage while travelling through Normandy in 1882 and painted it no fewer than eight times. We look down on it from a higher cliff, which accounts for the unusual composition with the high horizon. But Monet probably owed his receptiveness to such an extreme vantage point to his study of Japanese prints.
