MONET painted Haystacks, ISABELLE DUPUY paints the Maroon Bells.
ISABELLE DUPUY has cemented her fascination with one of the USAs most photographed parts of our nature, The Maroon Bells. Way back in early 2019 we saw her Winter V Summer exploration of the Bells, then depictions that touched on some elements of our mountains delivering that Rockie Mountain High feeling. In February 2021 we were graced with her continuing study of the Bells in all its glory.
Our Maroon Bells are part of Aspen's identity and pride. The twin peaked mountain is picture perfect... And is the most photographed peak in America. Isabelle rides a fine line between reality and abstraction: it's easy to recognize real features in her Artwork: Aspen trees, mountains, rivers... Isabelle starts with a very personal and specific inspiration that evolves on the canvas to be highly accessible and non-didactic. Imploring you to participate in the painting with her….Making it your Mountain…that then becomes anywhere and everywhere…yours.
Claude Monet was renowned for his Haystack series, all previous depictions by ISABELLE of the MAROON BELLS have been secured by Admirers and Collectors FAST.

Haystacks is a title of a series of impressionist paintings by Monet…
The series is among Monet's most notable works.
Monet settled in Giverny in 1883. Most of his paintings from 1883 until his death 40 years later were of scenes within 3 kilometers (2 mi) of his home. Indeed, the haystacks themselves were situated just outside his door. He was intensely aware of and fascinated by the visual nuances of the region's landscape and the variation in the seasons.
For about 18 months, between 1890 and 1891, Monet focused on the subject matter and created around 30 paintings. As he often found, the changing light during the day presented him with many obstacles in his landscapes, he wrote: "I am,., struggling with a series of different effects [haystacks]... but at this season, the sun sets so fast I can not follow it..." He admitted that he felt a great deal of work was necessary in order to succeed with the rendering he wanted.Haystacks was the first group of multiple versions of a theme that he exhibited in 1891. Fifteen depictions were shown in Paris at the Galerie Durand-Ruel. The theme was among his most celebrated.
