Claude Monet – L’Ete

Artist

(Oscar-) Claude Monet was born on November 14, 1840 in Paris. He died on December 5, 1926 in Giverny. He worked as a painter in different creative periods. His early work was realistic. His style evolved, in mid creative period, to impressionistic. After he removed himself from the mainstream and traditional artistic taste, his financial situation became problematic. To counteract his financial situation, Monet created many motifs in series towards the end of the 19th Century. He used the same motif with different lighting conditions. During this time he also started to create his world famous garden in Giverny. Equally famous are the motifs Monet used from his garden to inspire himself, such as the water lilies or the pond with the Japanese bridge.

Artwork

“L’Ete”, translated into English “summer”, was created in 1874. It measure 80 x 57 cm (width x height).

Brief description

`When the sky and the landscape melt in the shimmering sunlight, summer’s there`, that’s what one could think while looking at the painting “L’Ete” by Claude Monet. Our glance glides across a cornfield or meadow, where a woman is sitting at the front in the shade. An umbrella is lying next to her. The grass around her is light green and her skirt is mirroring the blueness of the sky. Her head is tilted downwards as if she was reading a book. Our glance travels further toward another figure coming towards us, dressed in white. Behind this figure are three, slim trees swaying in the wind. Just like the row of cotton trees in the background. One can detect wind from the movement of the stalks of the trees and from the hat of the woman. The landscape proceeds to the smooth hills which have taken on the colour of the sky. The whole painting gives a summer vibe, by use of almost milky colours.
