Monet at Poissy (16) Working like a madman After the opening of the seventh impressionist exhibition in Paris, Monet hurried back to Pourville. In his own words, he was “working like a madman”, and delayed his return to mid-April, no doubt because the lease of his studio at the Rue Vintimille, Paris, came to an end and he had to vacate his studio at the Rue Vintimille, Paris on 15 April 1882. Here are a few excellent fruits of the “madman’s work”: views from the east side of the Pourville beach and one of the paintings of the church of Varengeville, further west of Pourville.
