Monet on the Mersey, Valette in the Vale
On the Trent and Mersey Canal north of Saltersford Tunnel, in the Borough of Vale Royal.
Were Monet on the Trent and Mersey canal one autumn he might have painted this- it reminds me of his Japanese bridge and water lilies. Although maybe Manchester's very own French Impressionist Adolphe Valette would have been more likely to create this than Monet?
The largest ever Valette exhibition is now on at the art gallery named after his star pupil- LS Lowry- The Lowry Gallery in Salford until January 2012. See:

Not heard of him and I do like the work of the impressionists. Also being a fan of Saint Etienne the band anyone from the place cannot be all bad. Might see if I can catch this.ReplyDelete
I love Saint Etienne - the band- too. Something very melodic and touching about their music and lyrics.ReplyDelete
This is such a beautiful place Chrissy.ReplyDelete
A nice picture of a charming place - and thanks for the impressionist info:)ReplyDelete

A wonderful painting you did as well. Please have a good Wednesday.ReplyDelete
You can find the Monet's bridge and some flowers of his Givernt's garden in my album : http://pierre-boyer.blogspot.com/p/essai.htmlReplyDelete
