Claude Monet painted the Road of Bas-Breau, Fontainebleau in 1865 on one of his many trips to the French countryside. Like his other landscapes, Monet distilled the scene in broad brushstrokes and vivid colours – this time however, he experimented with perspective. Rather than a horizontal layout, Monet draws the viewer’s eye into the heart of the landscape. Rising trees either side lead us down a pathway, creating a sense of depth and journey. We join Monet in his walk.

‘Road to Bas Breau Fontainebleau’ is an internationally popular image. It has been reiterated in prints, posters, fine art reproductions and other artist’s practices, moving it from the specificities of Monet’s life to our shared visual lexicon. In Philippe Le Miere’s rendition, this sense of shifting meaning is captured. Le Miere exaggerates Monet’s brushstrokes, transforming the image into a trace of its origins, a distant memory.

For collectors of contemporary and impressionist art, ‘after claude monet road to bas breau fontainebleau’ is a beautiful find.
