To anyone in the know, Claude Monet would often fuse Japanese art into his later compositions, and in particular favoured a yellow background to further this oriental cause.
The Impressionist was so smitten with the colouration that he was said to have painted several rooms in his Giverney house in his favoured tone.
Anyway, we digress, as Monet wasn’t responsible in any way, shape or artistic form for this – ‘Still Life Flowers – Yellow’ – despite dedicating a lot of his time to the capturing of flowers throughout his career. No.
This is the latest limited edition, numbered and signed ‘flattery’ piece, courtesy of one-time master forger now respected originator of art, John Myatt. The leading contemporary artist has returned to the scene of many previous ‘re-imaginings’ to afford us another version of Monet pictorial events as seen here.
So just to clarify, this ISN’T a Monet composition, rather it’s how Monet would have interpreted ‘Still Life Flowers’ in yellow, should he have ever chosen to do so. From the brush of Myatt.
