About Garden at Sainte-Adresse
Painted by Impressionist master Claude Monet in 1867, Garden at Sainte-Adresse captures a picturesque scene from a summer spent in the seaside resort town on the English Channel, near Le Havre (France). This wonderful representation of an idyllic family gathering combines smooth, traditionally rendered areas with brilliant passages of rapid, distinct brushwork and bursts of color.
In a nod to Japanese prints, Monet paints the terrace, sea, and sky as three distinct bands of bright color from an elevated viewpoint, thus emphasizing the painting’s two-dimensionality. He creates important color associations, such as linking red in the flags with the red flowers, and blue at the top of the sky with the lilac blue hues in the flower beds.
About Claude Monet
Claude Monet (born November 14, 1840, Paris, France—died December 5, 1926, Giverny) was a French painter who was the initiator, leader, and unswerving advocate of the Impressionist style. In his mature works, Monet developed his method of producing repeated studies of the same motif in series, changing canvases with the light or as his interest shifted. His popularity soared in the second half of the 20th century, when his works traveled the world in museum exhibitions that attracted record-breaking crowds.
