In November 1888, Van Gogh wrote: "Gauguin was telling me the other day—that he’d seen a painting by Claude Monet of sunflowers in a large Japanese vase, very fine. But—he likes mine better. I’m not of that opinion." Critics had earlier praised the "brio and daring" of Monet’s technique when he showed this still life, depicting sunflowers that grew along the pathway to his garden at Vétheuil, at the 1882 Impressionist Exhibition.
Jane Christie is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and the Pastel Society of Colorado. Jane has received countless awards for her paintings. Her love of nature and the beauty that surrounds us all, inspires her, just as Monet's garden and his world of nature inspired his timeless works of art.
