This work commemorates the marriage of the painter Theodore Earl Butler to Claude Monet's stepdaughter Suzanne Hosched in the village of Giverny, a match the French master opposed. Following the civil ceremony at the town hall, shown at the upper right, the wedding party proceeded to the church of Sainte-Radegonde to exchange religious vows. Working from memory two weeks after the wedding and deploying his most facile Impressionist technique, Robinson carried Impressionist fluency so far that only the bride can be identified. The story he offers is thus not a factual account but an enigmatic recollection. The picture also signals the links between Monet, who settled in Giverny in 1883, and the colony of American painters who began to arrive two years later.1892/Terra Foundation for American Art, Chicago
