As Monet’s Japanese Footbridge is our art reproduction of the month, I thought I’d show you our actual reproduction oil painting of it.
Monet moved from Paris to Giverny in 1883 where he lived until his death. The Japanese Foot-bridge, which spans across the water-lily pond he created, appears in several of his works from the 1890s onwards. In fact, Monet painted approximately 250 paintings of his water lilies (Nymphéas).
Fabulous Masterpieces has been asked to commission many different versions of Monet’s Water lilies.
On 19 June 2007, one of Monet’s water lily paintings sold for £18.5 million at Sotheby’s London. A year later another of Monet’s water lily paintings, Le bassin aux nymphéas, sold for almost £41 million at Christie’s in London. And In May 2010, it was announced that the 1906 Nymphéas work would be auctioned in London in June 2010, the painting had an estimated sale price of between £30 and £40 million. Giovanna Bertazzoni, Christie’s auction house director and head of impressionist and modern art, said
“Claude Monet’s water-lily paintings are amongst the most recognised and celebrated works of the 20th Century and were hugely influential to many of the following generations of artists”.
The sale took place on 23 June 2010 at Christie’s and the painting attracted bids of up to £29 million, but it ultimately failed to sell. To find out more please follow the link http://fabulousmasterpieces-blog.co.uk/monets-nympheas-1906-failed-to-sell-at-christies-london-ouch/
