by Claude Monet
Claude Monet, a well-known artist was a pioneer of Impressionism. His painting shows a flock of turkeys on the grounds of the Chateau of Rottenburg in Montgeron. It is one of four planned decorative panels commissioned by his patron, Ernest Hoschede who the estate belonged to. The paintings were intended to be presented in the drawing room of the estate, and all four panels are thought to have been created in order to represent the life at the estate during all four seasons.
