Opus 278, “Homage to Monet: Reflections”

The country estate at Giverny, where Claude Monet spent the last one-third of his life painting and gardening, was greatly admired by Cano. Restoration has been undertaken there, most notably focused on the water-lily garden. Its unusual reflections include overarching wisteria that complements the lilies’ own hovering shapes. For Cano, the bold mix of colors and mixture of rhythms has given a greater animation to his work, beautifully bounded by an exceptional gilded frame. The result is a work true to Monet that lessens any boundaries between generations.
