Monet Claude – “Jeanne-Marguerite Lecadre in the Garden”
The full title of this masterpiece by Claude Monet, written in 1867, is “Jeanne-Marguerite Lecadre in the Garden of Sainte-Adresse.” The theme of nature has always interested the artist very much, landscapes occupy a large place in his work, they are very bright, diverse – people sometimes found in images of nature are relegated to the background, only enhancing the greatness of the image of nature.
The painting “Jeanne-Margaret Lecadre in the Garden” refers to the period of the heyday of the artist’s work, so the woman’s figure fits perfectly into the surrounding landscape, becoming almost weightless. During this period of creativity, the artist practically ceases to depict people in his paintings, giving the main role to the image of the beauties of nature.
In the painting Jeanne-Marguerite Lecadre in the Garden, Claude Monet depicted a hot summer day, the light of the bright sun shines through the foliage of the trees. A young girl in a dazzling white dress is walking in the park. She admires the flowers growing in the flowerbed and, according to the artist’s plan, makes one whole with the nature around her. The author tried to preserve the vitality of nature on the canvas and he succeeded.
The picture itself glows from the inside with the energy of wildlife, a girl in a white dress gives her a piece of her strength. Monet himself is in this picture: here is his soul, with reverence for every living part of the great nature.
