The Japanese Bridge: Gallery Label - Current


Minneapolis Institute of Arts



Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Frame: Gift of Myron KuninMonet made the footbridge in his garden at Giverny the subject of two series in 1895-1900 and 1919, and he returned to its wisteria-covered frame repeatedly in the 1920s. With its raw vigor and passionate coloring, this picture underscores an observation Monet once made of his water landscapes in general - it reveals "the instability of a universe transforming itself every moment before our eyes."This reproduction frame, with its ribbon-and-stave moulding detail, is in the style of those used by Paul Durand-Ruel, the famed dealer who worked with and promoted the Impressionists.
