Claude Oscar Monet moved to a village near Paris called Argenteuil in 1872, two years prior to the first exhibition organized by the Impressionists. The artist painted Autumn On The Seine At Argenteuil a year after, a beautiful landscape of the Seine river with boats and vegetation. The village of Argenteuil was semi-rural and offered an abundance of sun-drenched landscapes, but was close enough to Paris to travel by train. Like many other Impressionists at the time, Monet shunned the city life and searched a calmer life in the country-side.
The Seine river was a reoccurring subject for many painters at the time, like Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, since these waters pass by many locations with different landscapes. During the beginning of the XIX century, Argenteuil became a known spot for its boat races in the vast basin of the river. Boating had become very fashionable at the time, and Monet took advantage of the scenes to paint – especially on Sundays when the many competitors and spectators went to the village.
As an Impressionist, Monet worked en plein air, meaning he painted outside to capture the effects of natural sunlight on a landscape. Joining the glistering water, with abundant vegetation, many human figures, and all under beautiful sunshine resulted in a perfect motif for an artist like Monet to portray. Like many other modern painters, Monet was profoundly influenced by the Japanese art that came to Europe. These artworks depicted subjects of nature, and typical scenes of the daily life and artists like Hokusai worked with Ukiyo-e, a technique similar to woodcut prints.
The oil painting Autumn On The Seine At Argenteuil portrays the Seine river in light shades of blue and white, as well as reflecting the colors of the vegetation, the boats, and the faraway city. The left side of the canvas is drenched in warm shades of yellow, green, orange and ochre that represent tall autumn trees. The bright red and blue boats on the edge of the river break the colors of the trees that reflect in the water. To the middle of the canvas, in the far background, the city is portrayed in shades of light blue and white. The right side of the painting shows some green and darker trees.
