The Regatta at Saint-Adresse by Claude Monet (1840-1926, France) | Museum Quality Reproductions | WahooArt.com
The Regatta at Sainte-Adresse is a painting by the impressionist painter, Claude Monet. This painting and "The Beach in Sainte-Adresse" (Art Institute of Chicago) were probably conceived as a pair. They are identical in size, and their viewing point differs by only a few yards. Sainte-Adresse, the well-to-do suburb of Le Havre, was the home of Monet's father. Destitute, Monet spent the summer of 1867 with his father and aunt Sophie Lecadre at the cost of abandoning his companion, Camille Doncieux, and their newborn son, Jean. Monet attended the birth in Paris and returned to the coast a few days later.
