About the La Promenade Painting

Artist: Claude Monet

Completion Date: 1875

Style: Impressionism

Genre: portrait

Technique: oil

Material: canvas

Dimensions: 55.3 x 64.7 cm

Gallery: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, USA

"Camille, Monet's first wife, is shown with a child in the garden of their house in Argenteuil, near Paris, where they lived between 1872 and 1877. Today, Claude Monet is primarily known as a landscape painter, but in the beginning of his artistic career, he used to concentrate on portraits. No one else appeares in Monet's paintings as often as Camille. In those year, portraits of women were mostly ordered by bourgeois clients, but among progressive painters, the artistic structure became more important than the identity of the portrayed person. The masterly style, the lack of details, and the plainness of the colours led to a completely new directness of expression, independent of the facial gestures of the depicted person. In this picture, the shimmering reds, blues, greens, and white that capture the brilliance of a sun-drenched day are applied with many small brushstrokes, whose varied shapes create the different textures of flowers, grass, and clothing. Meanwhile, the features of the woman are completely indistinct."

THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR

San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk (Monet)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"San Giorgio Maggiore al Crepuscolo is an Impressionist painting by Claude Monet. Painted in 1908 (many were not completed until 1912), oil on canvas, on the Venice, Italy mainland, the piece gives an original view of San Giorgio Maggiore. Focusing on the cathedral and bell tower located on the coast of the island, the beauty of the island at sunset is portrayed. The paintings of San Giorgio Maggiore form one of Monet’s greatest series.

San Giorgio Maggiore al Crepuscolo became familiar in popular culture in 1999 after its appearance in John McTiernan’s rendition of The Thomas Crown Affair.

This piece is owned by the National Museum Cardiff in Cardiff, Wales.

San Giorgio Maggiore al Crepuscolo is also occasionally referred to as Dusk in VeniceSan Giorgio Maggiore by Twilight and Sunset in Venice."

Impression, Sunrise (Impression, soleil levant) is a painting by Claude Monet. It gave rise to the name of the Impressionist movement.

History

Dated 1872, its subject is the harbour of Le Havre in France, using very loose brush strokes that suggest rather than delineate it. Monet explained the title later:

Landscape is nothing but an impression, and an instantaneous one, hence this label that was given us, by the way because of me. I had sent a thing done in Le Havre, from my window, sun in the mist and a few masts of boats sticking up in the foreground....They asked me for a title for the catalogue, it couldn't really be taken for a view of Le Havre, and I said: 'Put Impression.' [1]

It was displayed in 1874 during the first independent art show of the Impressionists (who were not yet known by that name). Critic Louis Leroy, inspired by the painting's name, titled his hostile review of the show in Le Charivari newspaper, "The Exhibition of the Impressionists", thus inadvertently naming the new art movement. He wrote:

Impression — I was certain of it. I was just telling myself that, since I was impressed, there had to be some impression in it … and what freedom, what ease of workmanship! Wallpaper in its embryonic state is more finished than that seascape.
