Claude Oscar Monet began to participate in the Impressionist exhibits in the year of 1974 and continued for many following years. Although his artistic career was being praised, his personal life was in crises, as his wife Camille passed away almost two years after having their second child in 1878. This tragedy in Monet’s life was significant to his production, as he became more experimental in his artwork. During this period, the artist and his family were living with the Hoschede family and their six children in Vetheuil. Ernest was the father and would spend most of his time on business in Paris, making it possible for Monet and Alice Hoschede to become more proximate and eventually develop a loving relationship.
In 1883, Monet, Alice, and their combined children moved to Giverny, where the artist was significantly inspired by the landscapes of his new town. Like many other Impressionist, Monet admired the Japanese woodcut prints that came to Europe. These exotic artworks brought subjects of nature and its calmness, along with bright colors and unusual compositions. Artists like Hokusai were admired for their simplicity. The direct contact artists had with nature was a fundamental influence on the aesthetic progression of the movement. They painted en plein air, meaning they worked outside to capture the optical effects natural sunlight had on the landscape and the figures. The Japanese also valued subjects of the every-day life – giving the modern painters a reference different from the ancient Greeks, something they strived to stay away.
The modern painter concluded Sunlight Effect Under The Poplars in 1887, and most probably portrays Alice centered on the field, and one of their children on the left in the background. Monet painted an overall green area of grass with yellow and oranges specks of light, and also blue and violet bits underneath the trees. The way the artist applies the brush strokes in this area is similar to the way the Pointillists worked – who influenced Monet’s work. There are three large dark green and purple poplars trees that exceed the limits of the canvas. The far background also portrays some trees, as well as purple mountains and a clear light blue sky. Monet plays with complementary color combinations like blue with orange and purple with yellow, creating a beautiful unity in the artwork.
