Historical Context:
Claude Cambour is considered a master of the classic tradition of painting “en plein air,” the concept of painting outdoors, that was established in 19th century France. The technique was made famous by the French Impressionists as a way to more accurately paint the beauty of natural light and color in its immediate environment. Cambour often takes his canvas and palette to the lush landscapes of Giverny, painting the same forests, gardens and paths as Claude Monet once painted and called home.
