Wild Poppies by Claude Monet


Title: Wild Poppies by Claude Monet

Wild Poppies, near Argenteuil, 1873. Wild Poppies was shown at the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874, this painting demonstrates Monet’s supreme skill at depicting a figure or flower with a brushstrokes.

A beautiful oil print, with a stunning, perspective of the poppy fields and the different textures of nature. Splashes of reds and lilac are used against a natural green background to create this country masterpiece. Now one of the world’s most famous paintings, it conjures up the vibrant atmosphere of a stroll through the fields on a summer’s day.

Claude Monet, b Paris, 1840, d, 1926.  Monet career was central to the Impressionist movement.  Monet diluted the contours and constructed a colourful rhythm with blobs of paint starting from a sprinkling of poppies; the disproportionately large patches in the foreground indicate the primacy he put on visual impression. A step towards abstraction had been taken.

In the landscape, a mother and child pair in the foreground and another in the background are merely a pretext for drawing the diagonal line that structures the painting. Two separate colour zones are established, one dominated by red, the other by a bluish green. The young woman with the sunshade and the child in the foreground are probably the artist’s wife, Camille, and their son Jean. The original is in the Musee d’ Orsay, Paris, France.
