In 1866, when Monet was only 26 years old he painted "Women in the Garden" en plein air.

His model, Camille, posed for all the 4 figures in this painting.

This painting was bought by Monet's friend and fellow artist, Frederic Bazille.

You are welcome, Bubble.

Yes, this painting depicts the costumes of that era. Camille is a lovely lady - Monet's favourite model who later became his wife.

Best regards, Jason.

Beautiful women, dresses and setting for this Monet - Camille looks wonderful. Thanks dear Jason for sharing these works of art. (✿´‿`)

I think that this painting was an inspiration to Frederic Bazille to present his own version of family gathering the next year (1867-in Family Reunion). Lovely puzzle. Thank you.

Hi Jason, First, I want to say that it was a pleasure to solve all four of your puzzles today of the beautiful Monet paintings. Then, I want to say a heartfelt thank-you for posting my most favorite Monet painting, "Women in the Garden," as a puzzle. My husband and I were both so happy to see this lovely puzzle and to read your comment tonight. We hope to see this painting in the special exhibit featuring Frederic Bazille and the Impressionists at the National Gallery of Art a week or two after we come back from our trip honoring our 57th wedding anniversary.

Thanks again for posting this wonderful painting as a puzzle. It is one of life's little dreams come true. Warm regards, Donna

Not at all practical in today's world. But yes, they were beautiful!

You are most welcome, Bev.

You are welcome, Judy.

We are feeling the heat, too. Can be very hot on certain days, but then it will rain every few days, so that helps to cool the air.

Beautiful dresses but not practical for modern times.

Thank you Jason for this lovely scene, Bev.

If these ladies could see what we wear today....there are no thongs under these skirts.:))
Actually my daughter Wendy, put this puzzle together today. 6-10-17

With our temperatures expected to get to 97F today or higher, I cannot imagine wearing all the layers of clothing outside as these young ladies (or rather just one) did during this time.
Thanks Jason.

Dear Donna, I would like to dedicate this puzzle to you. Hope that you will enjoy it.
