View of Vétheuil, 1880

Oil on Canvas

Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926)


During summer 1880 Monet painted twenty-six views of the area around the village of Vétheuil. Six were painted from the Île Saint-Martin, one of the many nearby islands in the Seine. In this example, Vétheuil may be seen in the background. In 1881 Monet returned to the site and painted the view twice more.
