Bookmark: Monet's "Studio Boat"


Between 1871 and 1878, Claude Monet lived in Argenteuil, a town on the Seine about 15 minutes from Paris. The artist had a small studio boat made so he could paint while floating on the river. Monet was fascinated by light and the way that it reflected off water, and painted many studies of the Seine at different times of day in all seasons.
