Claude Monet's painting (titled "Impression, soleil levant") gave Impressionism its name. He spent his life capturing ordinary scenes glowing with extraordinary light. Couldn’t you just hug him? Now you can! The Claude Monet Little Thinker doll captures the spirit of Monet with his long beard, an artistic smock, a painterly brush, and a Frenchy-French beret of Frenchness.
Give Monet to a creative pal, a young artist of your acquaintance, or the propriétaire of your pension. You can also keep him at home to make a good impression (the French pronunciation, naturellement).
