Stole Sunset - Jacquard
This stole is inspired by a detail of the work Sunset on the Seine at Lavacourt, Winter effect by Claude Monet - 1880 Oil on canvas; H. : 100 ; L. : 150 cm.
Lavacourt is a village in the Paris area, located on the left bank of the Seine, opposite the village of Vétheuil where Monet was based in September 1878. The winter of 1879 was particularly harsh.
Paris and the surrounding area were paralysed by snow and all transport stopped. Despite the intense cold, Monet painted twenty or so paintings during the first months of 1880, observing the ice on the Seine slowly thawing.
