I abhor the work of Claude Monet. I do. The fact that his paintings monopolized the covers of art textbooks is probably why I never took an art class in college. (Mary Washington actually had a pretty popular art history course; my friends exhorted me to take it, but I never followed their advice.)
I don’t even much like the piece you see below. I’m running this blog post simply because I’m proud of the pun in its headline. Again — you people really should be paying me for these jokes.
Anyway, the title of Monet’s 1881 painting below is “Ship Aground.”
