Featuring Woman with a Parasol – Madame Monet and Her Son (1875) by Claude Monet (French, 1840—1926), this 6-color soft enamel pin includes a black rubber clutch to keep it securely in place.
In the original painting, Claude Monet demonstrates that he is as talented a figure portraitist as a landscape artist. He captures his wife and son in an unexpected moment while walking on a windy summer’s day. Sunlight shines upon her back, while shades of yellow from the flowers below dapple her front.
His signature light and spontaneous brushwork create splashes of color across the canvas: the green of the meadow is reflected in the underside of her parasol; the billowing clouds and swirling skirt of Madame Monet provide a sense of movement against the static figure of Jean, his son, set in background for depth.
