Women and children first

Magnet #1077 - Camille Monet and a child

Another Monet from my collection. I know, it's neverending, those Monets.

This piece is called Camille Monet and a Child in the Artist's Garden in Argenteuil from 1875, and part of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts collection.

Oddly, it never really specifies who the kid in the painting is - I've always assumed it was Monet's.

I just picked it for today, because yesterday at this time, I was merrily typing up a magnetpost talking about going to see the Addams Family and writing about the Adams library.

Today I find myself in North Carolina, with a bit of our world a little askew. Best laid plans, I suppose. But one that puts a lot of things in perspective.

I kinda like this image anyway, of the little one sitting patiently at Camille's feet. It takes me back to a time where I sat - ok fine, I'll face it, I've never really sat patiently anywhere.

Still, it's a peaceful image takes us back to simpler times, where all the world is right, where you had nothing to worry about except the toys right in front of you.
Pin It!
