Claude Monet and Friends

OK – it IS a hokey title. But, to paraphrase Woody Allen on another subject “as hokey titles go, it’s one of the best.” The reason I can say that with a straight face is that Claude Monet and Friends, is a visual reminder that although Cher Claude is unquestionably the most famous French artist, he has “friends” of every skill, experience and lifestyle level who are also artists.

Of every discipline. In every style. In every French village. That, folks, is a heck of a lot o’ artists. Is it not?

So to pay tribute to Claude Monet and his friends, here are two of my most requested videos. The first takes you to Claude’s stomping grounds in Giverny, the second to two of his artistic village friends. Enjoy!

    Both are cool…but i really like the second one…it gives you a real sense of what you say in the intro….that there are “friends”(artists) of monet all over france.
