    Nov 14, 1840 - Dec 5, 1926
  • The River, Bennecourt - Claude Monet was a French painter, initiator, leader, and unswerving advocate of the Impressionist style. He is regarded as the archetypal Impressionist in that his devotion to the ideals of the movement was unwavering throughout his long career, and it is fitting that one of his pictures - Impression: Sunrise (Musée Marmottan, Paris; 1872) - gave the group his name.

    One of the early masterpieces of Impressionism, On the Bank of the Seine, Bennecourt by Claude Monet depicts the artist's future wife, Camille Doncieux, sitting near the River Seine. Monet began the painting while he, Camille, and their new son, Jean, were staying at an inn near the village of Bonnières-sur-Seine. During this early phase in his career, the artist was struggling financially (unable to pay, he and his family were forced to leave the inn after several weeks). Although he was discouraged by the unfavorable response to his works, young Monet was on the verge of an unprecedented artistic breakthrough, embodied in the Art Institute’s painting.
    Monet depicted Camille enjoying a glorious day, looking across the river from the town of Bennecourt. The smooth water of the Seine reflects the inn where the couple was staying. The rowboat painted in the foreground transported them to and from the inn. Among the greatest of Monet’s oil sketches, On the Banks of the Seine, Bennecourt reveals the early hallmarks of Impressionism: a commonplace subject; an open-air setting in the countryside near Paris; broken, vibrating brushstrokes that depict the fluctuations of light; a high-keyed palette of rapidly applied blues, greens, and yellows; and forms that evoke a sense of immediacy.

  • The painting looks like a good copy of an original. It by no means lives up to the originals vibrance or detail. I was hoping for a copy a bit closer to the original and the coloration of the paints used to make the copy were off. I have to admit the artist did a great job, it just isn't quite as hoped. But for the price it was a good buy.

Claude MonetIn 1890 Monet had bought a strip of marshland across the road from his house and flower garden, through which flowed a tributary of the Epte. By diverting this stream, he began to construct a water-lily garden. Soon weeping willows, iris, and bamboo grew around a free-form pool, clusters of lily pads and blossoms floated on the quiet water, and a Japanese bridge closed the composition at one end. By 1900 this unique product of Monet's imagination (for his Impressionism had become more subjective) was in itself a major work of environmental art--an exotic lotus land within which he was to meditate and paint for more than 20 years. The first canvases of lilies, water, and the Japanese bridge were only about one yard square, but their unprecedented open composition, with the large blossoms and pads suspended as if in space, and the azure water in which clouds were reflected, implied an encompassing environment beyond the frame. This concept of embracing spatiality, new to the history of painting and only implicit in the first water-lily paintings, was expanded by 1925 into a cycle of huge murals to be installed in Paris in two 80-foot oval rooms in the Orangerie of the Tuileries. These were described in 1952 by the painter André Masson as "the Sistine Chapel of Impressionism." This crowning achievement of Monet's long, probing study of nature--his striving to render his impressions, as he said, "in the face of the most fugitive effects"--was not dedicated until after his death. The many large studies for the Orangerie murals, as well as other unprecedented and unique works painted in the water garden between 1916 and 1925, were almost unknown until the 1950s but are now distributed throughout the major private collections and museums of the world. Despite failing eyesight, Monet continued to paint almost until his death in 1926.
