The Artist’s Garden at Giverny – Claude Monet | [HR] Paintings & Info


Le Jardin de l’artiste à Giverny (English:The Artist’s Garden at Giverny) is an oil on canvas painting by Claude Monetdone in 1900 now the Musée d’Orsay, Paris. With his garden, Monet was able to manipulate nature to his needs. In order to paint nature with the most vibrant colors, he was able to hand pick the plants and flowers in nature. It shows the order and detail Monet had within his garden, and shows where he was going as an artist. The blocks of color would show up again in his Water Lilies paintings.

In this painting we see rows of color. On the bottom half Monet paints, with characteristic thick brushstrokes, rows of irises glistening in varying shades of violet. Where the trees above block the sunlight, the flowers are dark with highlights of white. In the middle the sun pierces through the trees filling the space with light purple, pink, lilac, and white. Monet has shown the brightness of the day, the sun bouncing off the delicate flowers.
