You should have selected someone else, after awhile, haystacks, the sides of cathedrals, and ponds get a little old. Now MANET, that was a real artist!! He still boasts the use of good colors like all Impressionists, but there are interesting things going on in his paintings apart from the use of color. If you want straight vapid themes with just color, stick with Renoir over Monet, Renoir's colors are much prettier.

Come on, Helen, ever seen his Cathedrale de Rouen (1892-1904)?

I think. Was that the one he pained like a million times at different times of day? He's certainly a more famous artist than I am an actress, but I just sort of found a lot of his stuff a little dull.

You're right about the cathedral (kind of pre-Warholesque, wasn'it?) I'll give you that: Manet was more innovative, so much so that Monet tried to paint a "dejeuner sur l'herbe" of his own and gave it up as a bad job.

I had never thought about Monet with Warhol. That's a very interesting point to think about!
