You will love it too
Have decided I like Turner …
Wish I was bidding!
My great great great grandfather and mother come from near here! Came to Aussie in 1850.
You need art like this …
I have had original size prints of these two paintings for many years.
Absolutely love Monet’s paintings.
Vétheuil in Summer
The Regatta at Argenteuil
I was sent an email with a PowerPoint presentation and have created a video from it.
Well worth watching …
I hope this inspires you to look at his paintings and to enjoy them as much as I do.

Yep like Monet absolutely
Bear’s favorite artist. Unfortunately not rich enough only have prints in my collection …
“A painting from Claude Monet’s acclaimed Grainstack series has fetched $US81.4 million ($108.8 million) at Christie’s New York auction of impressionist and modern art.
The sale set a new auction record for the artist. The previous auction record for a Monet was $US80.4 million set in 2008.
The 1891 painting, shimmering with hues of reds, pinks, blues and yellow, depicts a close-up of a single cone-shaped stack after harvest.
Monet’s Grainstack series — 25 in all — was painted just steps from his home outside a farmer’s field in the French village of Giverny.”

This is up for auction next week
“It is a salutary thought that of all the artists whose work has sold at auction for around $50m or more, only three predate Monet. This triumvirate comprises Raphael, Rubens and Turner. After finding an auction record of £30.3m in 2014 for the latter’s Rome, from Mount Aventine (1835), Sotheby’s London now offers another late work painted in the same year, Ehrenbreitstein. As the painting’s full title makes abundantly clear, this is more than a picturesque view of a Rhineland fortress atop a rocky crag.”
“Ehrenbreitstein, or The Bright Stone of Honour and the Tomb of Marceau, from Byron’s Childe Harold, represents the stone obelisk near Koblenz that forms the monument to the young French revolutionary hero, General François-Sévérin Marceau-Desgraviers, whose bravery in battle prompted a delegation from the opposing Austrian forces to join with the French in honouring him. For Byron, the poem Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage reflected the sense of melancholy and disillusionment felt by many in the aftermath of the French Revolutionary wars. Turner’s response, although poignant, seems far more positive. Peace has triumphed over war, and life continues as usual in this idyllic valley bathed in hazy golden light.”
Joseph Mallord William Turner, RA was an English Romanticist landscape painter. Turner was considered a controversial figure in his day, but is now regarded as the artist who elevated landscape painting to an eminence rivalling history painting. Wikipedia

I really want it just have to find a spare $30m. It should be in a museum for all to view don’t you think?
A few years old and not great resolution but Bear wanted to share.
Besame mucho Andrea Bocelli and Céline Dion…
Bear plays this regularly just to remind him of what is important in life …
This truly is his the “besame mucho Andrea Bocelli” with Céline Dion.
Céline Dion you are supa hot!
Love Claude Monet!
Have several large prints of his art in my house (because no one can afford the originals) I absolutely love his art.
