Walter Nottingham

In fact, Monet did eleven versions of the Gare Saint-Lazare.

Walter, Whoops! I left out an important detail. In the book Monet paints those six versions all at the same time in half an hour. Fixed it.


"The most sublime backside in art." Yes, it is. At the very least, it's on the short list. The original at the National Gallery in London is pretty amazing.

Thanks for passing on the book rec, Lance. (I'll probably pick it up for my mom - an avid mystery reader who's studied art history.)
