An Artists Communion Through A Lens

Impression, Soleil Levant

Impression, soleil levant (sun rise)

“Impression, sun rise” was painted by Claude Monet in 1872 while looking at the harbor of Le Havre from his window.  When shown, a critic’s hostile review compared his painting to “unfinished wallpaper. ”  This version is a photograph, taken 20 minutes after “soleil levant”, of the Atlantic Ocean from the beach at Pea Island Wildlife Refuge, Cape Hatteras.
