French artist Claude Monet (1840-1926) was a founder and history’s most prolific practitioner of Impressionism, especially as applied to plein air landscape painting. This Train in the Snow dates from 1875. Born in Le Havre, he studied at the Académie Suisse, Paris, and was a classmate and longtime friend of Renoir. In 1871, Monet moved to the Paris suburb of Argenteuil, where he exhibited with the Beaux-Arts impressionists. He transferred in 1883 to Giverny, northwest of Paris, where he grew prosperous and influenced many other artists. However, in the early 20th century Monet's sight deteriorated. He underwent cataract surgery in 1923, with mixed results. Claude Monet died of lung cancer in 1926 at the age of 86 in Giverny.

Notable news[edit]

U.S. investigative journalist Evan Gershkovich 's confinement in a Russian prison has been extended by two months, through January 2024, bringing his total jail time to 10 months. Gershkovich vehemently denied charges of espionage lodged against him last March, and his employer, the Wall Street Journal, on Nov. 28 termed them "categorically false" and an "outrageous attack" on press freedom.

Since you had objected to it, but said you thought context could make up for it, how's this look? I didn't editorialise a "this is bad", but... y'know. If he admits to that...

And, yes, it hasn't actually closed yet, but while I had time, I wanted to get this right. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 8.4% of all FPs. 19:00, 18 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adam: Looks good, except for typographical 'orphan' in last line, in which on my screen "successful solo career" gets centered by itself. Something to do with centered lines? -- Sca (talk) 12:11, 19 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Aye. It'll depend on exactly where the line break occurs, but text is centred as a whole; is awkward when it's only a couple words after the break, though. Given the preview has completely different linebreaks than the main page sizing, it's probably fine. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 8.4% of all FPs. 14:08, 19 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Saw your name on my watchlist, forgot where ... - just hello! - My story today is Canticle I: My beloved is mine and I am his, - the composer, born OTD 110 years ago, didn't want it shorter (but the publisher), more here.
