Amy in Black - Tom Root
Louis Ritman - Looking Out, Giverny on Flickr.
In Looking-Out, Giverny, Ritman approaches his motif as an act of calm and quiet contemplation, an attitude much favoured by his compatriots. Here, a lovely young woman gazes out at a lush garden in full flower growing just beyond the open French doors. Her richly-coloured and patterned dress links the table top still life to the myriad white blossoms seen immediately outside the threshold and eventually to the pink roof and yellow facade of the adjoining building, partially masked by the slightly closed blinds of the jalousie.

Claude Monet’s iconic 1907 painting ”Nymphéas” (“Water Lilies”), painted in his beloved garden Giverny, France, has been sold for $24 million to an undisclosed Asian buyer in the season-opening auction of impressionist and modern art at Christie’s.
The work is part of heiress Huguette Clark’s estate and has been off the market since 1930. Now Christie’s is selling hundreds of items from Clark’s collection after a feud over her estate was settled in the fall. The Montana copper mining heiress died at 104 in 2011. Her father, U.S. Sen. William A. Clark, founded Las Vegas.
