12. Monet, Our Visiting Artist

Seward Johnson

Monet, Our Visiting Artist, 2008 Ed. 4/8 bronze with aluminum

72 x 64 x 55 in.


Created as an homage to Claude Monet (1840-1926) painting Terrace at Sainte-Adresse, this sculpture was originally entitled “Copyright Violation.” The bronze figure has since been shown "painting" other inspired scenes in an "art imitating art imitating life" scenario. Here at the Gardens, Monet captures a scene overlooking the swimming pool.
