Claude Monet Port Domois á Belle-île (Port Domois at Belle-Isle), 1894 is a landscape looking down from a cliff towards the powerful sea off the coast of Brittany. In the foreground to the left and right of the composition is the land on which Monet was standing. Just in between the two jutting landmasses is a rock, being pummeled by waves, powerfully drawn with whitecaps. In the background is another coast of steep cliff-faces. The water is drawn so expertly that it looks as though it is splashing around amongst the rocks. Alternating the use of white for the foam, and shadow, the waves seem to come alive.
Created in 1894 after an original painting of the same title created in 1886, this color lithograph on chine appliqué on wove paper is hand-signed by Claude Monet (Paris, 1840 - Giverny, 1926) in pencil in the lower left margin; also hand-signed by the engraver G. W. Thornley in pencil in the lower right margin. From an edition of 25 hand-signed proofs by both Claude Monet (Paris, 1840-Giverny, 1926) and G.W. Thornley; printed by Belfond & Cie and published by J. Mancini, Paris.
