Claude Monet, French, 1840・€・1926
La Japonaise (Camille Monet in Japanese Costume)

Claude Monet exhibited this work at the second group show of the Impressionist painters in 1876, where it attracted much attention. Large-scale figure paintings had traditionally been considered the most significant challenge for an artist. Using this format, Monet created a virtuoso display of brilliant color that is also a witty comment on the current Paris fad for all things Japanese. The woman shown wrapped in a splendid kimono and surrounded by fans is Monet・€・s wife, Camille, wearing a blond wig to emphasize her Westernツidentity.
