OIL PAINTING: Lane in the Vineyards at Argenteuil , 1872
The landscapes paintings
Monet painted at Argenteuil between 1872 and 1877 are his best-known, most popular works, and it was during these years that impressionism most closely approached a group style. Here, often working beside Renoir
, Sisley, Caillebotte, or Manet, Monet painted the sparkling impressions of French river life that so delight us today.
