Grounds for Sculpture is a 35 acre sculpture garden located in central New Jersey. It was built on the old New Jersey State Fairgrounds in Hamilton. Whilst wandering the grounds one can admire contemporary sculpture or suddenly find oneself in a scene from a Manet or Monet painting.
In this case, the viewer is actually privileged enough to stand behind Monsiuer Claude Monet as he works on his famous "Terrace at Sainte-Adresse."
The sculpture gardens have a number of these living sculptures scattered about the premesis. Put it this way, when you visit Grounds for Sculpture, you never know which French Impressionist painting you're going to walk into. The sculptor responsible for these is a gentleman by the name of Seward Johnson.
Seward Johnson is not the only sculptor whose works are on display at Grounds for Sculpture. A number of talented contemporary artists have their works on display at these sculpture gardens.

Your pov and choice of details to include is just stunning from this place Linda - and you sure ends up in a Monet 'look alike' setting. Good work and very interesting to see this 'model' of the master in work.

Very nice photo of this interesting-sounding place, Linda. You made a good composition looking "across Monet's shoulder", and the way in which the greenery opens up to show the scene with the classically-dressed couple, the boat, and the flag is very pleasant. Nice vivid colors all over.

Bien vu, belle prise, classique mais intéressante, le jeu des couleurs et des diffrérents plans est très beau
