The Picnic

Claude Monet
Oil on canvas, 130 x 181 cm
Pushkin Museum, Moscow

The Picnic (the original is 6 by 6 meters!) was unfinished and later rolled up and then cut up by the artist. It's also known as Le déjeuner sur l'herbe. There are two large fragments preserved in the Musée d'Orsay. All the versions and fragments show picnic guests in a clearing in the forest of Fontainebleau. [from the Web Gallery of Art]
