Claude Monet painted Woman with a Parasol -- Madame Monet and Her Son in 1875. Standing on a gentle hill with the wind whipping her voluminous skirts around her legs, Camille presides over this vision of summer. Jean is at her side, but color and movement are the true subjects of this painting.

Tints of pink and yellow make Camille's white dress shimmer, and shades of violet and brown lurk in the shadows that her figure casts upon the lush green ground. The buoyancy of her parasol and swaying wildflowers express the motion of the wind.
