Claude Monet in the Netherlands

The locations of his paintings

Between 1870-1880 the French impressionist painter Claude Monet visited the Netherlands several times. During his stay he made 42 paintings. Especially the cityscape of Amsterdam and typical Dutch scenes as windmills, ships and tulip fields were popular with him. Most of the scenes on his paintings have changed drastically, but some others are still unchanged.

The blue house on the Hogendijk in Zaandam still exists. In the same city there is a nice copy of the original house as part of the modern old Zaan style hotel in Zaandam. One of them is the famous little blue house as painted by Claude Monet.
