Eye Candy for Today: Monet’s Pave de Chailly

Pave de Chailly, Claude Monet
Pave de Chailly, Claude Monet

An early painting by Monet of the road from Chailly to Fontainebleau, painted prior to the development of the broken color Impressionist style for which he is best known. I love this period of Monet’s work.

On WikiPaintings. Original is in the Musée d’Orsay.

Compare this to another canvas titled Pave de Chailly that he painted from the same spot in different light, and this related painting of The Bodmer Oak Fontainebleau.

    I’ll keep it in my Dropbox folder a couple of weeks.
