About the Artist, Claude Monet

Claude Monet (born November 14, 1840, Paris, France—died December 5, 1926, Giverny) was a French painter who was the initiator, leader, and unswerving advocate of the Impressionist style. In his mature works, Monet developed his method of producing repeated studies of the same motif in series, changing canvases with the light or as his interest shifted.

His popularity soared in the second half of the 20th century, when his works traveled the world in museum exhibitions that attracted record-breaking crowds.

About Santa Classics

Santa Classics is a series of images created by artist, photographer Ed Wheeler. He imagines Santa entering into the great masterworks of art, with humor and reverence for the originals.

Ed Wheeler has researched hundreds of paintings and finds that certain compositions beckon to him for a "Santa intervention." Often Santa replaces a main figure in a painting; sometimes he is added to a group composition or may even be the single human presence in a landscape. Ed's intent is to pay homage to the original paintings while offering art lovers an additional reason to smile. Once a painting is selected, he embarks on a multi-step process to fully integrate Santa into the lighting, brushstrokes and tonal values of a particular painting while maintaining the fidelity of the original. It is this attention to detail, lighting and relationships between figures, which lead to another kind of art experience.
