Where can I find this in Berlin?
`When the sky and the landscape melt in the shimmering sunlight, summer’s there`, that’s what one could think while looking at the painting “L’Ete” by Claude Monet. Our glance glides across a cornfield or meadow, where a woman is sitting at the front in the shade. An umbrella is lying next to her. The grass around her is light green and her skirt is mirroring the blueness of the sky. Her head is tilted downwards as if she was reading a book. Our glance travels further toward another figure coming towards us, dressed in white. Behind this figure are three, slim trees swaying in the wind. Just like the row of cotton trees in the background. One can detect wind from the movement of the stalks of the trees and from the hat of the woman. The landscape proceeds to the smooth hills which have taken on the colour of the sky. The whole painting gives a summer vibe, by use of almost milky colours.
