Claude Monet (French, 1840―1926) has long been regarded as the Impressionist par excellence. For more than sixty years, he strove to capture the nuanced richness of the world around him in vibrant canvases that explore the changing quality of color and light at different times of the day and in various weather conditions.
The sunflowers harvested for the lush bouquet featured on this pen grew flanking the steps that led down to Monet’s garden at Vétheuil. He exhibited this painting, now in the Museum’s collection, in 1882 at the seventh Impressionist exhibition, where the “brio and daring” of his technique elicited the critic’s admiration.
The highlight of the pen is the smooth twist-action ballpoint system, activated by turning the tip cone. The Metropolitan Museum of Art logo appears on the cap top. Brass base metal body with heavy chrome plate accents.
Handsomely packaged in a color coordinated paperboard gift box. Uses the smooth writing Waterford Ballpoint refills. One refill is included, installed in the pen. Limited 1 Year Warranty.
