Monet – “Flowers on the banks of the Seine”
One of the most famous Impressionist painters is, of course, the French painter Claude Monet. Impressionism, with the help of special, inherent only to this style, artistic means, involves the image of the emotional component, the artist’s impression of what he saw. Monet is the author of a large number of world-renowned masterpieces written in this style. The painting “Flowers on the banks of the Seine near Vetheuil”, painted in 1880, is considered one of the most famous works of the great master.
In 1878, the artist transported his family to the small village of Vétheuil, located near Paris on the banks of the Seine. The fresh country air and abundance of nature inspired Claude Monet to paint a large number of river landscapes, one of the brightest examples of which is the painting Flowers on the Banks of the Seine near Vétheuil.
In the picture, the artist depicted a hot summer day, light clouds float across the sky, reflected in the waters of the Seine River. The coast is full of wildflowers that merge into the green-yellow sea.
The work was written in the characteristic manner of impressionism – the artist captured on it his impressions and experiences caused by the magnificent view of nature. While living and working in Vétheuil, Claude Monet painted a whole series of landscapes dedicated to the Seine River, depicting the same area, but at different times of the day and in different weather, as if carefully observing nature, which is in continuous change.
