Corner of the Garden at Montgeron

This landscape was painted by Claude Monet in 1877. Its style is impressionism and it was painted with oil on canvas. I like how each brush stroke is its own color and nothing blends until you look at it from far away. Even though it looks sloppy up close, when you step back farther it oddly looks very detailed. It amazes me how someone could paint in this style by just layering colors on top of another. I think this is a beautiful peice of art.
