La Seine à Vétheuil (The Seine at Vétheuil)
Oil on canvas, circa 1880
Claude Monet (1840-1926)
Portland Museum of Art, Portland, Maine
Portland Museum of Art, in Portland, Maine, has some very impressive paintings in their permanent collection. This Monet is one of my favorites in their collection. Photography is allowed in most parts of the museum as long as you don’t use flash, so I was able to get this image of the painting on my last visit (for interested photogs… I used an Olympus OM-D E-M1 with 12-40/2.8 lens, hand-held at 1/60th, f/3.5, ISO 800). I was surprised to find almost nothing at all online about this painting, so I thought I’d post about it. Enjoy!
