A view of the monastery island of San Giorgio, painted from the south-eastern end of Venice. On the right are faintly visible the dome of Santa Maria Salute and the mouth of the Grand Canal. Every evening in late November 1908, Monet and his wife made gondola trips to enjoy 'these splendid sunsets which are unique in the world'. This work was purchased by Gwendoline Davies in 1912, directly from Monet's exhibition of his Venetian Scenes in Paris.

Hi Serena,

Just to let you know that the painting is back on display at the National Museum in Cardiff. Our database disagreed with us, but I had a look and it's hanging in the gallery! I hope you will be able to visit us to see it in person.

Hi, the site still says out on loan, I wondered if there was an approximate return date for it yet? Would be fantastic to see it for real!

Hi there Serena,

I have been in touch with the art department and passed on your question - I will post their answer here as soon as I get it.

Best,

Sara

I see this available everywhere online, but they appear to be done in many different shades. Is there a photo of the original, with it's frame, so I could buy a print (most likely resembling the original, not in off colors) and get the frame that was chosen to go with the original?
Thank you

Dear Lee - apologies, but this artwork is currently out on loan, Art Online will be updated once it is back on display.

Hi, Is this picture back on show yet?

Hi there Ashley and Melanie,

To answer both your questions, the work is currently displayed in the Basilica Palladenia, Vicenza, until the beginning of May.

I'm afraid I cannot give a firm date for its redisplay, but as soon as the date if confirmed, I'll update this post.

Melanie on 19 February 2014, 19:09

When is the painting back at the museum please? Am wanting to visit specifically to see this.
Thanks

This is an fantastic painting.

i feel as if this painting describes my life, there's the reds of despair but then there's the happiness of blue, the pointy jagged edges of the characature in the background describe the jagged edges tearing away at my soul
