One day I was exposing my third grade art class to the exquisite, impressionist waterlilies of Claude Monet's late work. They were enthralled. I even wore my Monet necktie with water lilies on it (which impressed them somewhat less than the slides). Afterwards, I mentioned that another artist from approximately the same era, who sometimes worked in an impressionistic style, was Eduoard Manet and that some people confused Monet's work with Manet's.

For those wondering, I did NOT make that up.
