Monet, French painter born on 14 November 1840 and founder of the impressionist era, had a passion for documenting the French countryside and capturing the same scene multiple times as the day passes and seasons change.
Leonid Afremov was a painter of Belarusian origin born on July 12, 1955. He was a modern impressionistic artist who usually worked with palette knives and oils. He is widely known for his unusual painting manner, Impasto technique.
In this box, you’ll get to fly above the mountains, rivers, lakes, and enjoy the beauty of the earth from the balloons painted by Leonid Afremov. This painting symbolises the victory of man over gravity while enjoying the beauty the earth has to provide.
You will also enjoy the coastal landscape featured in Monet’s painting from his early career being at the Boatyard near Honfleur in 1864. Paintings produced around Pourville appear to have had a special significance to the artist.
