Monet’s Rough Sea at Étretat has very evocative feelings for me. His 1883 painting of the cliffs at the Normandy village of Étretat was one of his regular views.
Étretat is a place with memories of summer, having visited several times, but the stormy seas reminds me of the current weather with its succession of Atlantic storms and maybe deeper troubles.
It also reminds me how enjoyable it is to stand where the great artists have stood and try (unsuccessfully) to emulate them!
