Claude Monet: Woman with a Parasol - Madame Monet and Her Son (1875)

I chose this painting by Claude Monet because this painting is very different from others. Monet did not focus on the lady's features, giving her a more faded appearance. Monet focused more on the lighting and the direction from which the light is coming from. He gives it a more realistic look by adding shadow. Also, this painting is of Madame Monet and her son on a casual family day. I like how Monet focused more on a family scene rather than just a portrait of his wife and son.
