Monet Paintings Garden at Sainte-Adresse

Garden at Sainte-Adresse was painted by Claude Monet in 1867. Monet painted this canvas in the summer of 1867 in a Sainte-Adresse garden with a view of Honfleur at the horizon. The models were probably Monet’s father Adolphe, in the foreground; Monet’s cousin Jeanne Marguérite Lecadre, at the garden fence; Dr. Adolphe Lecadre, her father; and perhaps Lecadre’s other daughter, Sophie, the woman seated in the foreground with her back to the viewer. Although this scene projects affluent domesticity, it is by no means a family portrait. Monet’s relations with his father were tense that summer, owing to family disapproval of the young artist’s liaison with his companion, Camille Doncieux. Buy best Monet reproductions online

Monet called this work “the Chinese painting in which there are flags”; Renoir referred to it as “the Japanese painting with little flags.” In the 1860s, the composition’s flat horizontal bands of color would have reminded sophisticated viewers of Japanese color woodblock prints, which were avidly collected by Monet, Manet, Renoir, Whistler, and others in their circle. The print by the Japanese artist Hokusai that may have inspired this picture remains today at Monet’s house at Giverny. This painting can be reproduced by Daydaypaint.com.

Monet Painting La Grenouillere

Monet Painting La Grenouillère

La Grenouillère was painted by Claude Monet in 1869. Monet noted on September 25, 1869, “I do have a dream, a painting [tableau], the baths of La Grenouillère, for which I have made some bad sketches [pochades], but it is only a dream. Renoir, who has just spent two months here, also wants to do this painting.” Monet and Renoir, both desperately poor, were quite close at this time.  Monet reproductions sale

This painting and one in London (National Gallery) are probably the “pochades” Monet mentioned; another painting, now lost but formerly in the Arnhold collection in Berlin, may well have been the “tableau” that he dreamed of. The broad, constructive brushstrokes here are clearly those of a sketch; at this time, Monet sought a more delicate and carefully calibrated surface for his exhibition pictures. (A nearly identical composition by Renoir is in the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm.) famous paintings reproductions online

Monet and Renoir both recognized in La Grenouillère a spa and working-class resort an ideal subject for the images of leisure they hoped to sell. Optimistically promoted as a “Trouville-sur-Seine,” it was easily accessible by train from Paris and had just been favored with a visit by Emperor Napoleon III and his wife and son.

Monet Paintings Camille Monet on a Garden Bench

Monet Paintings Camille Monet on a Garden Bench

Camille Monet (1847–1879) on a Garden Bench was painted by Claude Monet in 1873. Monet’s art depends on observation of his environment, and to that extent it is always autobiographical. In his pictures, one can chart the seasons, the weather, or as here, the look of women’s fashion in 1873. Monet’s wife, Camille Doncieux, is as easily recognizable as the mounds of geraniums in the garden of the couple’s rented house in Argenteuil. Monet reproductions sale

Camille Monet on a Garden Bench is the most enigmatic of Monet’s rare genre pictures. Numerous interpretations have been offered, yet nothing has been found in the literature or theater of Monet’s time that corresponds to this scene. The most telling clue may be biographical: the death of Camille’s father in September 1873. Camille was an impassive model, but here she telegraphs sadness, while holding a note in her gloved hand. Later, Monet identified the gentleman as a neighbor perhaps one who had called to offer his condolences and a consoling bouquet. This painting can be reproduced by Daydaypaint.com.

Monet Paintings The Parc Monceau

The Parc Monceau was painted by Claude Monet in 1878. Monet painted five views of the Parc Monceau: three in 1876 and two in 1878. In this canvas, the disposition of light and shade in the foreground, the patterns of the leaves, and the broad contours beginning to develop in areas of strong contrast suggest that Monet had already begun to experiment with the boldly two-dimensional motifs that would characterize his work of the 1880s and 1890s.

Monet Paintings Regatta at Sainte-Adresse

Monet Paintings Regatta at Sainte-Adresse

Regatta at Sainte-Adresse was painted by Claude Monet in 1867. This painting and The Beach at Sainte-Adresse (Art Institute of Chicago) were probably conceived as a pair. They are identical in size, and the point of view differs by only a few yards. Sainte-Adresse, the well-to-do suburb of Le Havre, was the home of Monet’s father. Destitute, Monet spent the summer of 1867 with his father and his aunt Sophie Lecadre at the cost of abandoning his companion, Camille Doncieux, and their newborn son, Jean. Monet attended his birth in Paris on August 8 and returned to Sainte-Adresse on August 12. Buy best Monet reproductions online

The pair of paintings juxtaposes this sunny regatta, watched at high tide by well-dressed bourgeois, with an overcast scene at low tide, showing fishing boats hauled onto the beach peopled with sailors and workers. Monet reproductions sale

Since Monet never exhibited the paintings side by side, the contrast between them was not intended as a social manifesto but instead reflected differing conditions under which the same scene, convenient to his father’s house, could be observed.

Claude Monet Paintings Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies

Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies was painted by Claude Monet in 1899. In 1893, Monet, a passionate horticulturist, purchased land with a pond near his property in Giverny, intending to build something “for the pleasure of the eye and also for motifs to paint.” The result was his water-lily garden. Monet reproductions sale

In 1899, he began a series of eighteen views of the wooden footbridge over the pond, completing twelve paintings, including the present one, that summer. The vertical format of the picture, unusual in this series, gives prominence to the water lilies and their reflections on the pond. This painting can be reproduced by Daydaypaint.com.

Claude Monet The Bodmer Oak Fontainebleau Forest

The Bodmer Oak, Fontainebleau Forest was painted by Claude Monet in 1865. The Bodmer Oak named after the Swiss artist Karl Bodmer (1809–1893), who exhibited his painting of the tree at the 1850 Salon was one of several imposing trees in the Fontainebleau Forest that had acquired a special appellation. Buy best Monet reproductions online

The carpet of russet leaves signals that Monet painted this canvas just before he left Chailly-en-Bière, near Fontainebleau, in October 1865. It is probably the last of several landscapes executed in connection with his monumental Déjeuner sur l’herbe (fragments of which are now at the Musée d’Orsay, Paris).  Monet reproductions sale

The slash in the upper right-hand corner of the painting may have been made by Monet, who reputedly mutilated some canvases in order to discourage a landlord from seizing them in 1866.

Monet Painting by the Edge of a Wood

Claude Monet Painting by the Edge of a Wood, sargent first met Monet in 1876, but the two artists were closest ten years later. It was probably in 1885 that they painted together at Giverny, near Paris. Sargent admired the way that Monet worked out of doors, and imitated some of his subjects and methods in sketches such as this. Monet Paintings for Sale

It is characteristic of Sargent to give a human view of Monet’s practice and of the patience of his wife, who sits behind him. When he settled in London in 1885 Sargent was initially viewed as avant-garde, but came to be the greatest society portraitist of his day.
