Le Bateau Atelier

I chose the painting Le Bateau Atelier which means The Boat Studio in French.  It was done by artist Claude Monet in 1876.  The medium is oil on canvas.  The painting is 28 3/8 inches by 23 1/2 inches.  This painting is located at The Barnes Foundation, in Merion, Pennsylvania.  I chose this painting because I like the loose brushstrokes and the way that Monet painted the reflection of the water.  I also think it is interesting that he had an art studio on a boat.
