Gallery Talk: Claude Monet's Les Peupliers

Description

Christie's Impressionist & Modern Art Specialist Sharon Kim discusses Claude Monet's Les Peupliers, one of the most celebrated of the pioneering artist’s great series of works from his years in Giverny. Painted en plein air during the summer of 1891, the work is the largest of the artist’s paintings devoted to a picturesque arrangement of poplar trees, known as the “tree of liberty” in his native France.
