#7 San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk

Monet didn’t intend to paint when he visited Venice in 1908 as it had already been depicted by numerous artists. However, during his visit he was entranced by the sights in the city and he called for his painting material. He began a series of preliminary works which he completed much later when he returned home. Among these was this painting which is also referred to as Venice at Dusk and which became one of his most popular paintings. It is noted for thin, light brushstrokes and masterful depiction of light and the movement of water. Year: 1908 – 1912
