Um, I'm guessing it's from a show off the WB network?

What do I win?

I'm guessing something by Mary Cassatt, but it's been a while since I took any art classes.

I'll ask Mrs. Pusser. She was an art major.

That could not be more obviously Monet, even if he wrote "CLAUDE MONET PAINTED THIS" in big letters across it.

As for the show: I'm going to guess it's from a adolescent-angst dramedy involving lots of overly-attractive teenagers that is entirely predictable and derivative, yet manages to cling to surprisingly strong Nielsen ratings thanks to an uncritical youth population.

There's actually one he did with two women on a boat and one is standing - looks kinda like her, but she would be on the other side of the picture and smaller. It's possible it's not Monet, but it sure looks like it is. Renoir did some similar stuff, but couldn't find anything looking like this... besides, his work was more detailed. As for Monet, that picture looks like his work but I'd have to look at it up close to be sure. From a distance, they looked detailed but close up you could look at the hash brush strokes and just know it was Monet. Much like VanG's strokes.

I've been googling for a while and can't come up with anything. I don't mind displaying my abject ignorance for all to see, but I need closure!

I figured it was either Monet, Manet, Munet, any M_net really.

I'm starting to think it's not Monet. I'm pretty sure it's not Renior because he liked to paint fat chicks. And honestly, there's too much detail for it to be a Monet. He was surely capable of detail, but I think when he was in that period of his work he was just kinda churning em out and not putting as much detail into them. I skimmed through all the impressionists I could think of and didn't see any that really fit. I'm pretty sure it's late 1800s, but beyond that I think I'm stumped.

Well, I appreciate all the attempts so far... I should say that what you see is almost the entire painting (no other people or significant objects on the left). If anybody else has an idea, speak up! Thanks, everybody.

The level of detail in the painting doesn't exclude Monet as a possibility. Look at some Monet portraits, and some (particularly earlier ones) have at least as much detail as that painting....although it is kind of a crappy photo.

Yeah- I didn't say he couldn't do detail... I'm saying when he was in that period when he did paintings like this, his work wasn't as detailed. Either way, it's just too hard to tell from that picture exactly how much detail is in it... I still am doubting it is Monet though. I've been through my Monet books and my Renior book and I don't think it's either. It's probably one of their friends.

<B>Obviously</B> Monet? Are we even sure this is a famous painting? You know how many Monet-style paintings came out of a single art class I attended?

Not that it <i>isn't</i> Monet...
