Monet Spoof. Water Lilies With Shopping Cart.
Very well done spoof of Monet's art, with todays realities included in the image. This is Altered Art from Monet's famous painting entitled Water Lillies, 1906.

The following information is NOT printed on this postcard:

Claude Monet (1840 – 1926) was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting.

In 1872, he painted Impression, Sunrise depicting a Le Havre landscape. It hung in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874 and is now displayed in the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris. From the painting's title, art critic Louis Leroy coined the term "Impressionism", which he intended as disparagement but which the Impressionists appropriated for themselves.
