Claude Monet


This photgraph of Claude Monet at Giverny welcomes you to the Garden Impressionists in Edinburgh until 17 October. This world class exhibition has been packed for months and has extended opening hours in its last week due to popular demand. Works have been brought together from Rome, Chicago, New York, Paris from National and private collections. This photo is not very clear but the interesting thing is that he is sporting a bold gingham, frilly shirt with a coarse textured tweed suit. Very Paul Smith. I think Grayson Perry would approve of Claude being so ahead of his time. He might like the lilies too.
