It was painted in 1873 by Pierre Auguste Renoir and is titled "Claude Monet Painting In His Garden At Argenteuil." It was painted at at time when Renoir and Monet lived near each other and often painted together and frequently the same subject. Artist Jay Rolfe selected this painting because it's a handsome painting. It is on loan to the exhibit from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford CT.
