About The Painting:
In 1867 Monet spent the summer with his family at Sainte-Adresse, a seaside resort near Le Havre.
Using his father (seated) and other relatives as models, Monet created this sunlit scene of contemporary leisure au bord de la mer, in a garden with a view of Honfleur on the horizon.
In his correspondence, Monet called this work 'the Chinese painting in which there are flags'; while his friend, Renoir referred to it as 'the Japanese painting.
Later works by Monet are on view in Gallery 819.
