Monet was the founder and leading figure of the French Impressionist movement and one of the most important painters in the history of art. A master of light and colour, he repeatedly painted the same scenes outside 'en plein air' to capture the changing light and passing seasons.
This print looks very like a real painting-obviously without the brush strokes etc. It looks like a natural paint finish as it has a matt, non-glossy look. I've never ordered a print before so have nothing to compare it wth but the person I bought it for is very pleased with it. I'd say it's good value for money.
