Print of Rounded Flower Bed (Corbeille de fleurs), 1876, by Claude Monet.
The original oil on canvas work is in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Monet's garden at Argenteuil near Paris provided the subject matter for this painting: a flower bed of tall gladioli shimmering in the light. The figure standing under an umbrella is the artist's wife, Camille, enjoying a leisurely stroll. Rather than being the focal point of the painting, she is merely a figure used to define the space. The flower bed itself dominates the composition. Using thick, short brushstrokes that appear as dabs at close range but synthesize at a distance, and juxtaposing red and pink blossoms against green foliage, Monet simulates the shimmering visual sensations experienced on a hot summer day.
Printed with archival-quality pigment inks on high-resolution, large-format twelve-color printers, the substrate is an acid-free and lignin-free 230gsm coated fine art paper. The bright white base color and smooth matte finish allows for the highest quality reproduction possible.
The image size is 10.25 x 7.5 inches on an 11 x 14 white ground, allowing it to fit into a standard 11 x 14 inch frame.
