      1. Rouen Cathedral has inspired many artists. A very famous painting is by Monet, then there is one by Pissarro and another by William Turner that I really like.
        I know that my country, Italy, is the richest nation in masterpieces, but I also feel very close to France, for its music, literature and art 🙂

      2. Of course! My virtual visits to France and Italy are a poor substitution, but someday I hope to see these treasures. You are, indeed, fortunate to live among such masterpieces. 🙂

    Interesting differences in brushwork between the sections of the painting.

    1. Yes! All that movement and layered color without a muddy mess – I can only marvel. I wonder how long he worked on it….


  4. Your source has a mistake in the title. The French noun “cathédrale” is feminine, so the first word in the title should be “La.”
