Print developed from Claude Monet’s Bordighera, 1884, from the Art Institute of Chicago’s collection.

In 1884, Claude Monet traveled to Bordighera, a town on the Italian Riviera, close to the border between Italy and France, for a working visit of three weeks that turned into nearly three months. In letters describing his efforts to translate into paint the brilliant Mediterranean light, Monet declared he was “fencing, wrestling, with the sun.”
