Claude Monet’s Saint Lazare Train Station series depicts a location which was virtually synonymous with modernity at the time. Not only were the trains themselves a hallmark of technological achievement, but the station itself was also new. The smoke from the engine creates effects similar to clouds in the sky and Monet portrays people as ghostly and sparse, which is comparable to the view from a speeding train window.
“One can hear the rumble of the trains surging forward, see the torrents of smoke winding through vast engine sheds. This is the painting of today; modern scenes beautiful in their scope. Our artists must find the poetry of railway stations, as our fathers found the poetry of forests and rivers” French novelist Emile Zola declared about this series in 1877.
This classic reproduction is commissioned by you and comes made to order. This one of a kind reproduction, carefully replicated by one of our skilled craftsmen, will be completed in just 4 to 6 weeks. Because we find that most people like to frame our paintings themselves in order to match the room they place them in, this painting comes unframed.
