Poppies by Claude Monet

The painting “Poppies” , presented at the first Impressionist exhibition, Monet depicted his wife Camille and their son Jean in a field near his home in Argenteuil. As in many other works by Monet, Camille is drawn with an umbrella in his hand, and his graceful contours give the film a special charm.

Wanting to convey a sense of movement, Monet said second pair of figures , on top of a hill. They are connected with the figures in the foreground of faint, running through the grass on the footpath.

Monet wrote “Poppy Field” in the open air, on a small portable canvas. Although the picture conveys a natural, spontaneous feeling, she carefully arranged.

This manifests itself not only in the fact that the artist repeated twice her figure, but also in selecting the angle that is set such that the bright poppies, filling the left part of the composition, are arranged diagonally along which are Camille and Jean like departing from beyond the picture.

Saturated color and movement, which is filled with pictures of this site is verified in contrast with the quiet tones of the upper right edge of the canvas, where the terracotta roof of the house skillfully connects the background to the foreground of the composition.
