Irises by Claude Monet

Irises by Claude Monet

Claude Monet painted the picture “Irises” from 1914 to 1917. He was a true master of landscapes, an eminent impressionist. Quite often he went to work in the open air, most of his works were created in a lively environment. The artist was of the opinion that work in nature adds to the paintings of liveliness and dynamics. If you write them while sitting in the workshop, you can miss many important details, and you will not be able to achieve the natural effect you can get in life. When working at home, the artist knows in advance how it will look like what he was going to paint, and in life unexpected things can happen that can drastically change the whole picture.

Monet invented many of his own techniques and techniques that greatly helped him in creating his canvases. Many other painters used his advice. In the process of writing pictures, he always tried to distract from all the outsider, he was completely imbued with the object of the image, and when he had some impression, he transferred it to the canvas. The impression is the embodiment of the artist’s thoughts about the subject, which he considers.

This canvas shows beautiful irises. They resemble a sea, alluring its deep beauty. The landscape has many shades of purple and blue, which are perfectly combined and merge with each other. The artist specifically, as usual, does not make clear contours and small details. The expressiveness of the picture is given by the large and volumetric strokes with which it is made, it resembles the Impasto technique. Irises made with such strokes look fabulous and airy.

The main task of Monet was not the clarity of the borders of the objects depicted, but the transfer of the present impression of them. If you look at the picture, you can see that only a few flowers are shown in detail. In his work, flowers symbolize the abyss, which attracts all those who watch its beauty.

The artist has always been a master in the selection of colors, which in each picture amaze the audience with their fresh combinations. He passes each shade through himself, feels all the colors, knows all their advantages and disadvantages, all this helps him to create such amazing works. Monet did not like to focus on any particular details, he believed that he needed to take the whole picture. This will help the viewer to see the imprinted piece of the world through the eyes of the artist, to feel his emotions embedded in the canvas.
