These masterpieces are not mass produced- each one is created one brush stroke at a time.
“Les Meules” is the title of a series of 25 Impressionist paintings by Claude Monet. The Les Meules series featured haystacks that were found in a field near Monet’s house in Giverny. The focus of this series was to repeat the same pattern to show the different effects of light and atmosphere over days, seasons, and weather conditions, but also to vary the framing and views. Recently, Monet’s “Les Meules” was sold at Sotheby’s for a record $110.7 million.
As an art lover, I would stand in the Musee d’Orsay all day, hypnotized by the tiny brush strokes and sublime swirls of color. And part of me always wanted to bring home a Picasso, Matisse or a Van Gogh. But then there was always that issue of price. I never seemed to have an extra $100 million lying around. Now I don’t need it.
Officially, I’m not an art historian. But I’ve been to some of the finest museums in the world and have to say that the detail and craftsmanship in these paintings is remarkable. If you’ve ever stood face to face with a true masterpiece, you know that there’s no substitute for real oil paint on canvas. These reproductions are created one brush stroke at a time, by classically trained artists, using the same “impasto” technique of the original masters. There’s no computer manipulation and no assembly line. In fact, it takes at least 10 days before the paintings are even dry enough to handle.
Each masterpiece reproduction is a genuine, hand-painted oil on canvas, set into a 23" x 18" antiqued-gilded frame.
