Life at Vétheuil saw an upsurge in artistic activity from the artist, always working despite the rapidly declining health of Monet's long-time partner Camille. Following her death in 1879, the wife of Ernest Hoschedé, Alice, became like a mother to Monet and Camille's children Jean and Michel. As Ernest worked to reestablish himself as a successful businessman and thus spending little time at home, Alice and Monet’s relationship developed into love. Eloping together, the painter decided to travel the country until he found the countryside and house that suited him and Alice.
A few years later the pair settled on Giverny, a village about eighty kilometers from Paris. Monet's garden at Giverny has become an iconic site in the history of painting and is one of the essential stops in an art-lovers pilgrimage that stretches across France. The artwork Pathway In Monet’s Garden At Giverny is one of Monet’s later works, painted in 1920. The artist had cataracts, which progressively got worst and consequently influenced the way he worked, leaning into abstraction. The art critics of the time didn’t receive well this way of painting, and the artist was criticized for continuing his career. Monet became an inspiration to Abstract Expressionism, an art movement from the 1950’s.
The Pathway In Monet’s Garden At Giverny is a perfect example of the abstract atmosphere created by Monet. As an Impressionist artist, he was very faithful to what he saw and felt, representing this through the use of color on canvas. Because of his condition, what he saw wasn’t very defined, and he depicted this in the works produced during the end of his career. This particular painting shows the pathway of his garden in Giverny. The path is centered on the canvas, with loose strokes of brown and yellow. The blotches of oil paint create a semi-circle as the vegetation create an arc over the road.
Monet paints layers dark and light pigments on a broad color palette of tonalities of green, yellow, red, purple, violet, pink, brown and black. Pathway In Monet’s Garden At Giverny can be compared to the equally named Pathway In Monet’s Garden At Giverny from 1901-1902, when his eyesight was still in good condition. Both artworks bring a welcoming atmosphere of overwhelming nature.
