Claude Monet (1840-1926) lived in Vétheuil from 1878 to 1881, during which time he produced some 150 paintings. He painted this lovely suburb of Paris coming in from all directions; he has painted the town from the hills above, from the roads leading into and out of the town and especially from the Isle St. Martin, one of several islands on the Seine looking across the river to the now familiar silhouettes of Vetheuil.
In 1901 he painted this scene 7 times; these were all summer scenes and only two with boats on the Seine. He kept on getting a more precise momentary capture for this scene every time he painted it. These are titled 'Morning Effect', or 'Pink Effect', "Sunset" or just "Afternoon". He did revisit many places he used to live before and reworked his canvases differently each time.
