Claude Monet: Poplars on the Epte 500-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926) Poplars on the Epte, 1891
Through the spring, summer, and fall of 1891, Claude Monet floated a boat down the river near his home at Giverny to paint its poplars. At one point, faced with losing his subjects to a timber merchant, he purchased the trees so he could continue painting. His Poplars on the Epte became part of a series in which Monet documented the fleeting effects of sunlight on the water, with poplars following the curve of the river single file toward the Seine. Monet’s brilliance in expressing light and movement is celebrated in this 500-piece puzzle.

Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926) ranks among the greatest painters in the history of art. He was the most influential of the Impressionists, a group of painters who strove to capture the endless variations of light and atmosphere that occur over the course of a day in a given location. Indeed, Monet’s misty dawn painting Impression, Sunrise gave rise to the movement’s name. His career spanned an artistic revolution, one that intensified realism and eventually led the way to abstraction and 20th-century Modernism. Among Monet’s best-loved works are landscapes, city scenes, still lifes, and his unparalleled paintings of flower-filled meadows and the exquisite gardens and water lily pond at his home in Giverny.
