Why was Claude Monet preferred? Because all of his paintings are stunning and of high quality. There isn’t a single piece of artwork he’s done that isn’t well-drawn. Monet spent his entire life painting, and he created over a thousand paintings. Prints of his paintings would look great in almost any room. You can select a print from a large collection of Claude Monet paintings. I’ve chosen some of Claude Monet’s most famous and beautiful paintings for you; I hope you enjoy my selection of Claude Monet Prints.
Gare Saint LAZARE print
This is one of a series of paintings depicting the Saint-Lazare train station. Claude Monet painted drawings of this station during a period in his life when he was inspired by rural life. There are a total of 12 paintings depicting this station, all of which were created by the artist. It’s interesting that each painting in this series is unique – they’re not just copies of one another. Different lighting and times of day add to the mystery.
Irises In Monet’s Garden print
In the town of Giverny in Northern Normandy, Monet purchased a manor house with a garden in 1883. While riding the train, he noticed this house. After purchasing the estate, the artist created a massive garden on its grounds, which he dedicated himself to for many years. He planted a variety of flowers and trees, drained the marsh, and built the famed water lily pond.
This house has been home to Claude Monet for over 40 years. And all the while, he was motivated to create by the beautiful garden. On his estate, Monet created a large number of paintings. One of these is “The Artist’s Garden at Giverny.” We observe a path leading to the painter’s house in the front of the painting, which is framed by many gorgeous trembling irises. The route calls you, asking you to follow it to the building, whose pink walls with green shutters can be seen through the thickets of towering trees.
Despite this, the image’s main character is a bundle of flowers. The iris seems to be breathing. The delicate petals are swayed by the breeze. They are lighted by sunlight in some areas. Monet uses short, thick strokes to express himself. In his paintings, the painter uses only pure paints, which he mixes on the canvas. His behavior is rude, but the artist masterfully catches the lyrical spirit of the scene. The work’s core colors are lilac, green, and brown in various combinations. Vertical tree trunks in the background balance the painting’s composition. In contrast to the irises dancing in the wind, they visibly enlarge the area and provide some stillness.
Poppies At Argenteuil print
In the years 1872-1873, Monet worked on the painting “Poppies.” The artist and his family arrived in Argenteuil, a suburb of Paris. This was a good moment for Monet because, despite his work was still far from being appreciated, his technique and talent had grown, and an unexpected inheritance from his father had improved his financial situation and allowed him to work effectively. This time of peace and productivity will continue for seven years.
One of the master’s most well-known work is “Poppies” or “Field of Poppies in Argenteuil.” Through the tall field grass covered with bright red poppies, a young woman with an umbrella and a boy in a short-brimmed hat walk towards the audience. A lover of Monet’s art may easily guess that this is his wife Camille and son Jean.
The composition has a strong diagonal pattern that is underlined with poppies. At the same time, color is used to capture the full compositional solution — red organizes and structures the picture’s space. Two figures near the beginning of the diagonal balance the two figures in the lower right corner of the painting. Monet did not try out a new scenery, but instead painted his wife and son as a reflection of the figures in the near landscape.
The sky in the painting is extremely schematically depicted. When you look at the original, you’ll notice that the canvas is really not filled with colors. The author clearly gave more attention to the lowest part of the work, where everything is written out in great detail and accuracy. The greenery is shown in light colors, with dark vertical trees towering over the area as a contrast. Because of the color of the “roll call,” a house with a terracotta roof appeared on the canvas, which acts as a link between the foreground and the backdrop.
The painting was completed outside in the open air. Monet visited the poppies with a little portable canvas in his hands, trying to grab a passing impression while harmoniously combining all of the picture’s features and pieces.
In 1874, the artwork was shown at the first Impressionist exhibition.
