The Eure, an Impressionist nature

It is in the Eure Department, in Normandy, and more precisely in Giverny, that Claude Monet spent most of his life. The village and the banks of the river Seine represent the quintessence of Impressionist painting.

The Impressionist painters mainly set up their easels along the meanders of the river Seine, in Paris and in Normandy.

L'Eure, terre de prédilection de la peinture

Is it the vibrant tranquillity of its landscapes? The Eure has always been and still is today an ideal land of inspiration and welcome for artists, especially painters.
