Claude Oscar Monet moved to Giverny in 1883 along with his wife, Alice Hoscedé, and kids. This translated into a significant period of change in the artist’s painting technique, as his wife Camille had recently died of cancer. The artist became more open to experimenting with his painting style, following Impressionist influences. While in Giverny, the newlywed couple began renting a house that they were, later on, able to buy. The property had a large garden, in which Monet created a living masterpiece of colorful blossoming flowers and spectacular nature. After gaining more fame for his paintings and developing financial stability, the artist was able to invest more in his garden, and he built a Japanese bridge over a small pond – a subject he portrayed in many occasions.
Monet concluded a series of oil paintings of the Seine river between 1896 and 1897, including Morning on the Seine 3. The painter worked many hours in his small studio boat which enabled him to explore many viewpoints of the landscape. He was concerned in observing the same scene at different times of the day and a variety of weather conditions, working on multiple canvases at once. As an Impressionist, Monet enjoyed working en plein air, meaning he painted on location to experience his surroundings and observe the optical effects of natural lighting. Although he was critiqued by his colleagues, he would finish most of his paintings in his studio.
The Japanese woodcut prints that arrived in Europe brought an entirely new source of inspiration for the Impressionists. Artists like Hokusai worked with themes of the everyday life, as well as transpiring their love for nature. These vibrant and colorful artworks influenced modern painters to elude to the Traditional values imposed in the art world. These prints were extremely valued by the artists like Monet, even though they had little or no commercial value. In Morning on the Seine 3, the artist used a technique similar to the Pointillists, where he applies spots of paint on the canvas, adapting it to his unique style. The sparkling blue water reflects perfectly the green, orange and brown vegetation of the Seine river banks. The sky is calm and painted with pigments of light blue, white and yellow.
