Apples and Grapes

Claude Monet French

Not on view

This is one of three tabletop still lifes depicting a basket of apples and grapes that Monet painted in 1879–80, when a spell of bad weather forced him to retreat indoors. In late November 1879, his future stepdaughter Marthe Hoschedé took note of a "painting of fruits" in progress, when she recorded that Monet was "working hard at his still lifes which are very pretty."
