Monet Vétheuil dans le brouillard (Vétheuil in the Fog), 1894 immerses the viewer into the foggy morning on the water. The water is glassy, calm in the early morning, and ahead barely visible through the dense fog appears the ethereal outline of the church, recognizable by its spire. The church at Vétheuil was a favorite subject of Monet’s during his time in Vétheuil. The blue tone used throughout the lithograph reflects the blue of the water and the sky, giving the impression that with the fog all things blend together. This lithograph is an excellent examples of Monet’s exquisite impressionist style – one which he perfected over the years.
