The Saint Lucy Chronicles is a very early piece of Narrative Web-Art by Saint Lucy & Rolf van Gelder.
Claude Monet was born in Paris on November 14th, 1840. The characteristically brilliant color of his painterly compositions have garnered him the respect and admiration of both critics and art lovers worldwide. The images of this internationally-renowned artist may be found in numerous galleries; both on the walls of these hallowed institutions, as well as decorating the key chains, coffee mugs, and T-shirts of the warm & friendly gift shops contained therein. In recent years, this artist has moved from the traditional to the digital canvas; an aesthetic shift which elicited much shock in the artistic community. Monet stands by his recent explorations into the realm of digital art. “The elements which featured so prominently in my earlier work — my study of light and interest in the passage of time — are explored even further in this exciting new medium” asserts Monet. “Why paint light when you can paint with light?”
Saint Lucy (also called Lucia) is a member of a wealthy and influential Sicilian family. Regrettably, the barriers of privacy that surround this same family have made its members something of a mystery to the world-at-large. Hence, little is actually known about Lucy and her clan. Wild rumors circulate, hinting at a woman with a shady past. How she came to be acquainted with the artist Monet is also a mystery. Allegations have been made of an illicit relationship between the young Lucy and the considerably older Monet. Neither party has denied nor confirmed these allegations.
