Claude Monet

Self-portrait of Claude Monet in sepia.
Details of the artist
Birth name:  Oscar-Claude Monet.
Artistic name:  Claude Monet.
Nationality:  France.
Year of birth:  1840, Paris.
Year of death:  1926, Giverny, France.
Style:  Impressionism.

Leader of the Impressionist art movement, Monet's paintings are recognized as the purest examples of this style. His importance is reflected in the price achieved by his oil painting "Le Bassin Aux Nympheas", sold in 2008 in London for 40.9 million pounds sterling.

Monet laid the foundations of modern painting, his brush did not seek to communicate a story or give moral instruction to the viewer, but instead placed on the canvas impressions based on the sensations experienced by the eye. The pointillist brushstrokes, which he painted in his works with masterful property, are the origin of modern pictorial art.

    Monet painted this work observing the fields of wildflowers outside the city that gives the painting its title. This work reveals Monet's passion for color. With dots of red, he disperses the flowers in a natural profusion across the lush green fields.

    The composition is in an Impressionist style, displaying a landscape in which the figures of Camille and Jean (the painter's wife and daughter, respectively) are sketched in the foreground with strokes of violet, black, and yellow. Similar silhouettes reappear in the distance on the tops of hills more as a suggestion of color than as well-defined figures.

    When the lilacs bloomed, Monet painted them with short, thick strokes of concentrated color, creating in this work a floating effect of a layer of flowers, distributed between sunlit and shaded areas.

    The artist did not like the formal character of the main path leading to the door of his house in Giverny. Instead of the trees that were in the walkway, Monet scattered all sorts of flowers in colors: pink, fuchsia, green, yellow, red, and white.

    The artist's wife protested the fact that the trees had been removed from the garden, but Monet insisted that they blocked the light from his flowers.

    The views are real and located in the French city of Étretat, where on its coast these spectacular rock formations are found. This one in particular is a stone arch that at that time, and still today, continues to attract tourists.

    One of the particularities of the viewpoint chosen by Monet is that this portion of the beach can only be reached by boat or by descending very steep terrains on foot. The afternoon sun rays directly illuminate only a portion of the landscape, giving the work a beautiful effect.
