‘Woman with a Parasol’ – aka ‘Madame Monet and Her Son,’ by Claude Monet

The subject appears to be Claude Monet’s wife and sun.  The real subject is wind, and movement—expressed in colour and texture.

  2. No, its 'sun'.... you can see that the sun is clearly just up there behind that cloud on the left hehehehe

    Yes, nice light and movement, I agree, but the wife looks like a bit of a shrew doesn't she? I can imagine her saying "Oh Claude, what are you doing down there, you silly man?"
