MONET, Claude
(b. 1840, Paris, d. 1926, Giverny)

Camille Monet on Her Deathbed

Oil on canvas, 90 x 68 cm
Musée d'Orsay, Paris

Camille, Monet's first wife died in 1879 after a long illness. Monet did a pale pink and blue study of her on her deathbed, the evanescent fluidity of which seems to articulate the slipping away form life of the loved one.
