There has never been a better time to see

I recently had the pleasure of viewing the current art exhibition at the Kimball Art Museum, Monet: The Early Years. The exhibition includes paintings that concentrate on the first phase of Claude Monet’s illustrative career. The young genius was well on his way in artistic development and imagination as is evident by the caliber of the paintings.
I was most captivated with Monet’s paintings of water and reflections given my own enjoyment of capturing reflections with my camera. Monet’s obsession with the painting of water and reflections was apparent by his keen ability to capture its many changing effects and moods. Something I can truly appreciate as the slightest change in your camera position or the wind on the surface of the water can produce a profound change in your image.
I would like to believe Monet would have appreciated the photograph that you see. It is a reflection of a stone building on a meandering stream. Captured during a partly sunny morning using a Nikon D810 camera with a Nikon 300mm f4 Phase Fresnel lens. Exposure was f10 @1/25 second; which was slow enough to allow the ripples on the water to create the intent I desired.

THE BROTHERS LE NAIN: PAINTERS OF SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY FRANCE
The Brothers Le Nain: Painters of Seventeenth-Century France will be the first major exhibition in the United States devoted to the Le Nain brothers, Antoine, Louis and Mathieu, who were active in Paris during the 1630s and 1640s. It will gather more than 50 of their best paintings and highlight the brothers’ full range of production, with altarpieces, private devotional paintings, portraits and those poignant images of peasants on which their celebrity rests. Masterworks will come from public and private collections in Europe and North America, with major loans from the Musée du Louvre and the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, as well as museums throughout France. Until recently, the work of the Le Nains has been shrouded in mystery. Little is known of their lives, and the attribution of their paintings to the hands of the individual brothers has been hotly debated. The exhibition will debut new research concerning the authorship, dating and meaning of their works. It will be accompanied by the results of a major study of the paintings by the conservation departments of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Kimbell Art Museum.
This exhibition is organized by the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and the Musée du Louvre-Lens.
