Camille, Monet’s first wife, is shown with a child in the garden of their house in Argenteuil,
near Paris, where they lived between 1872 and 1877. The shimmering reds, blues, greens, and white
that capture the brilliance of a sun-drenched day are applied with many small brushstrokes, whose
varied shapes create the different textures of flowers, grass, and clothing.
