The artist Claude Oscar Monet painted three artworks of the Parc Monceau in Paris, during the spring of 1876. He changes his viewpoint in each work and includes the work entitled The Parc Monceau Paris, which was shown in the 1876 Impressionistic exhibition. Later in 1878, Monet concluded three more paintings of the park, which includes At The Parc Monceau. It is possible to see the painter’s technique change throughout these two periods, as he begins to transform his way of portraying dimension, bringing a two-dimensional aspect to his landscapes.
Monet, like other Impressionists, worked mainly en plein air – meaning they painted outside – as they did not desire to portray an idealized view of the landscape, but instead observe the effects of sunlight on a scene. The Japanese art that was coming to Europe was a significant influence on these artists, as they carried subjects of nature and the everyday life, themes considered to be very modern. Many Japanese artists were admired for their artworks in woodcut prints, like Hokusai. This technique was used with bright and pure colors, unusual compositions and subjects that went against the Classic standards imposed to artists by the Academies.
In the oil painting At The Parc Monceau, Monet portrays an intimate scene of a family relaxing under the shades of the tall trees. With very loose brushstrokes, the artist gives an idea of four people sitting on a bench, and the woman on the left is holding a baby. Other human figures and parasols can be seen on the landscape, all the way to the far background. The artist inserts the viewer in the scene as if he were sitting in the cool shade.
With spotted brush strokes of different shades of green, Monet fills most of the scene with large trees. The ground – the grass and the path – shows specks of light shining through the leaves. The far background is drenched in abundant sunlight and depicts some yellow and red flowers, as well as more trees. There are pigments of blue, purple, and pink in the sky, giving it a fantastical effect. This intimate scene is an excellent example of the Impressionist’s love for portraying the impact of sunlight on a landscape.
