"People discuss my art and pretend to understand as if it were necessary to understand, when it's simply necessary to love " Claude Monet (November 14, 1840 - December 5, 1926)

Today is a freezing, blistering cold day in November but this post by the Art Institute of Chicago has warmed my heart and I hope it does yours too. Happy birthday Claude Monet! No one can understand art and it's meaning better than those who have created it. Enjoy and love the beauty and gift of the body of Monet's work for it was created for that purpose.
