Monet: ' Poppy Field near Argenteuil, 1873.'
The original by Monet.

Monet's landscape work is unfussy, elegant and pretty much forms the "bible" for all landscape artists since then. The figures in the painting are his wife and child. He spent a lot of time in this region of France and produced many paintings featuring these fields of poppies lavender and grain crops.
