Claude Oscar Monet painter Hunting, also known as The Shoot in 1876, at the Chateau de Rottembourg. The painting portrays a typical scene of men in the woods hunting. The depicted nature is exuberant and seems to swallow the men with its infinite power. Monet was an Impressionist painter, who worked during the beginning of the modern times.
The Impressionists admired the Japanese art and began collecting many woodcut prints, done in a technique called Ukiyo-e. Artists like Hokusai worked with simplicity, depicting themes of nature and the common subjects of the daily life – an opposition to what was imposed in art by the Classic Academies at the time. Monet and his colleagues worked en plein air, as a culmination of their love for nature and an urge to observe the natural sunlight while painting outside. They translated what they saw with vibrant colors and expressive brushstrokes, in a very Impressionistic manner. In some occasions, Monet would finish his paintings in his studio, causing critiques from some fellow modern painters.
In Hunting Aka The Shoot, Monet depicts on the forefront, the carcasses of the hunted animals – or the ‘trophies’ of a productive day of hunting. They are positioned on the right corner of the canvas, not bringing as much attention to the viewer as the other elements of the painting. The hunters stand in an open area of the woods, in front of a line of thin trees, as if they were ready to jump in. Monet was able to give a sense of depth by portraying the men that are farther away from the viewer in the right proportion. The man in the forefront was painted with much detail – he wears a hat and blue jacket, a beautiful complementary color combination to the overall orange pigment of the painting. Art historians say Monet portrays his friend and fellow artist Ernest Hoschedé in this painting.
With swift and small brush strokes, the Impressionist was able to depict trees filled with oranges, yellow and red autumn leaves - and a ground filled with them as well. This still scene of concentration gains the natural movement of nature, by the color palette and movements Monet used in this artwork. The far background painted in bright yellow suggests an open area of vast sunlight is ahead.
