Let's face it: it's been a decidedly lousy week. And month. And year. And—well, we'll stop at year. Sometimes, though, you have to focus on things besides the death, prejudice and cultural mishaps plaguing society. That's why we noticed when the Metropolitan Museum of Art tweeted on Saturday that Claude Monet had died exactly 89 years ago, in 1926. What a perfect opportunity to forget the bad stuff and look at some nice paintings for a second! In honor of the Impressionist titan, here are six Monet jewels to take your mind to a lovely place.
