Out of the Jurisdiction: Rouen Cathedral

Pretty easy to see why Claude Monet was led to paint this cathedral 30 times from 1892 to 1894.

Here is a link to a website that shows the 30 Rouen Cathedral paintings by Monet.

Great post, Jack. I see Monet stood on the other side of the Cathedral to do his paintings. Perhaps it had to do with evening light?

So that's what "magnificent" means!!!

Truly a work of art: the cathedral, your photo, Monet's many paintings.

I'm not sure I saw them the last time we were there but the Musee d'Orsay once had several of Monet's paintings of the cathedral grouped together. It was a wonderful set viewed in combination.
