Claude Monet

Water Lilies, 1919
Metropolitan Museum of Art New York City

Monet left much of his late work unfinished and released few paintings for sale, reporting that he was not yet satisfied and was still working on them "with passion."  This canvas is one of four water-lily pictures that, quite exceptionally, he did complete, sign, andsell in 1919.
