Monet's Bridge, Spring 81
Monet's Bridge, Spring 81
Like many artists, British-born Peter Ellenshaw was fascinated by both Claude Monet's paintings and the amazing gardens at Giverny that inspired so many of them. After his enormously successful career as a matte artist in Disney films, Ellenshaw spent his "retirement" as a landscape painter, traveling to various beautiful sites around the world. Giverny was one of his favorite locations, and he visited and painted there often, in this case choosing a perspective mimicking one of Monet's most famous paintings.
