Famous quotes containing the words monet and/or claude:

    Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment. To such an extent indeed that one day, finding myself at the deathbed of a woman who had been and still was very dear to me, I caught myself in the act of focusing on her temples and automatically analyzing the succession of appropriately graded colors which death was imposing on her motionless face.
    —Claude Monet (1840–1926)

    I was so angry to realize I’m a Quebecois, with no past, no history, just two cans of maple syrup.
    —Jean Claude Lauzon (b. 1954)
