The Sunflowers harvested for this lush bouquet grew flanking the steps that led down to Monet’s garden at Vétheuil. He exhibited this painting, now in the Museums’s colllection, in 1882 at the seventh Impressionist exhibition, where the “brio and darling” of his technique elicited the critics’ admiration.
