Claude Monet, Poplars on the Epte, 1891

The caption for this painting from the National Galleries of Scotland says, “This is a work from Monet’s celebrated series of poplar paintings made between the spring and autumn of 1891, the year after he had settled in Giverny. He used a boat as a floating studio and captured beautifully the shimmering effects of sunlight on water. The trees were ready to be sold for timber, but Monet, in partnership with a timber merchant, bought the trees at auction so that he could continue painting them.” (Emphasis is ours.)
