My First Pastel of Monet’s Pond, Giverny, France, 2014
Masters Gallery Ltd.;
Private collection Calgary
In 2013, Horace Champagne embarked on a magical series that captured Monet’s famous gardens, including the Japanese bridges, water lilies and ponds that Monet himself painted during his lifetime. This work is the very first of the series, and Champagne renders the lush plant life and reflective pond of Giverny with masterful delicacy.
