Jpg: Friend of the JSS Gallery / MFA
It is thought that this painting by Monet is the one that is seen in John Singer Sargent's painting of Monet painting by the edge of a wood:

Monet's "Meadow with Haystacks near Giverny"

Sargent's "Claude Monet Painting by the Edge of a Wood"

Special thanks to Philip Resheph, of London, a friend of the JSS Gallery, for sending me the image of the painting.
