I've watched a few episodes of Mozart in the Jungle. Good show. And the title made me think of other historical figures in uncharacteristic places. Mainly painters, so I could show how it may have affected their work. Monet in the Wild. Cezanne on the Sea.
Here, Monet hopped on a floatplane for a look down on the Leconte Glacier in Southeast Alaska.
He stepped off his zodiac and set up his easel on the mossy forest floor.
Monet cruising around the Inian Islands, capturing the view to the Fairweather Mountain Range.
I mean, every classic painter would be cooler if they painted killer whales. It's a fact.
With the rest of the group hiking, Monet stayed on the edge of a river, taken by the blackwater reflection of cedar, sitka spruce and hemlock.
Monet stayed aboard and painted while the small boats explored the face of the glacier.
A quick walk around the glacial lake at Mendenhall before fueling up in Juneau and heading south.
Monet makes one last painting as the ship heads south to Seattle.
