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.
