Note card Monet's "Promenade, Railroad Bridge, Argenteuil"
Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926)
"The Promenade with the Railroad Bridge, Argenteuil," 1874

This work was painted in the year of the first Impressionist exhibition and displays Claude Monet’s characteristically sketchy brushwork; the light gray color of the canvas ground remains visible across much of the picture surface. Monet represented his wife Camille and son Jean walking alongside the River Seine, while in the distance a train crosses the recently constructed railroad bridge. Monet lived in the Parisian suburb of Argenteuil from 1871 until 1878 and produced an extensive body of work there focusing on themes of leisure and industry.
