Pen Claude Monet - Poppies - Musée d'Orsay
This pen shows a detail of the work of Claude Monet "Coquelicots, environs d'Argenteuil" (Poppies) preserved at the Musée d'Orsay.
When he returned from England in 1871, Monet settled in Argenteuil and lived there until 1878. These years were a time of fulfilment for him. Supported by his dealer, Paul Durand-Ruel, Monet found in the region around his home the bright landscapes which enabled him to explore the potential of plein-air painting.
