"Beach at Pourville" by Claude Monet in 1882

I chose this painting (oil on canvas) by Claude Monet because the colors of the sea and sky stuck out to me. I love how he blended the blues and greens together for closer up to the shore and I love how the sky has a smudgy look of blue and white but still looks like beautiful clouds. I also saw that this painting was stolen from its place in Poland being worth $1 million at the time of its theft and was recently found in 2010, 10 years after it was stolen which was very interesting to me.
