Monet "Train in the Snow"

This is Monet's "Train in the Snow." It is an oil on canvas and was painted in 1875. I chose this painting because I am a fan of Monet. I also like how the picture looks mystified. It almost looks as if it is snowing and it distorts the view of the train. But that could also be the motion of the train passing a station. Another aspect of the painting I like is how detailed the fence is and the ridges in the snow from the path of the trains.
