Monet & Gogh

I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art today. It’s been a few months and I really love this museum. There were a lot of exhibits and pieces I loved, but something I really appreciated at a new level was the distinct styles of Monet & Gogh side-by-side. Paintings from both artists were in the same exhibit and you can immediately point out the paintings done by either Monet or Gogh. I am by no means an art snob – I appreciate art but I was never really the one to dive into discussions about “what the artist was trying to portray, yada yada.” But maybe it’s because I’ve gotten older, or some things in my life have given me a new perspective, or some other factor – but how these 2 artists represent their art in their own ways is really unique and beautiful. See if you can distinguish between the 2 below:
