    Never been a fan of impressionist painting, thinking yes (not that you’re interested in what I’m a fan of or not). But there are a few pieces that I really enjoy and this is one. Thanks.

    Thnks, Bill. On the contrary, I’m often interested in what people like, particularly when they step outside their usual range of preference, which is in large part what I seek to encourage with Lines and Colors (both in others and myself).

    Monet painted a number of these very atmospheric river scenes in his later career. Many of them by returning to the same spot repeatedly. You can see some of them by viewing the Wikipainitngs chronological listing for Monet around 1897.

    There is a painting of the same scene in the Met’s Ice Floes here in the Philadelphia Museum of art, titled Morning Haze (unfortunately not currently on view).
