Rouen Cathedral: The Portal (Sunlight), 1894
Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926)
Oil on canvas
39 1/4 x 25 7/8 in. (99.7 x 65.7 cm)
I went to the MET last friday and took a closer look at this painting because I have always hated it.  Photos online make it appear to be reminiscent of a badly exposed photo but closer in person inspection reveals.... disappointment.. seems lifeless. The Museum said this is more about documenting the appearance of the Cathedral at certain times of the day...Of  course I could do nothing like it so props to him.- Jeffrey Torres
