More information

On the advice of the artists Troyon and Boudin, Monet focussed on drawing during his early period in Le Havre and Paris. Drawings form only a modest part of Monet's oeuvre. The few that are known, like this one, were preparatory drawings for paintings and almost always enhanced with colours. His figure studies are extremely rare.

Tekeningen maken slechts een klein deel uit van Monets oeuvre. De weinige die we kennen, zijn voorbereidende tekeningen voor schilderijen en bijna altijd opgewerkt met kleuren. Studies van figuren zijn zelfs zeer zeldzaam.
