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:
