The Reproduction Process

Colors used:
Terrace at the Seaside, Sainte-Adresse

In the year of 1867, Claude Oscar Monet was having financial difficulties and had found out his mistress and future wife, Camille, was pregnant. During the summer, he left all of these problems behind and traveled with his family to Sainte-Adresse. His parents owned a house in a resort by Le Havre. The Impressionist enjoyed this sunny view of the terrace and painted the colorful seascape Terrace at the Seaside, Sainte-Adresse, having his relatives as models for his painting. His dad appears to the right with a panama hat.

As a modern artist, Monet was not willing to portray Classic themes, like the mythological or biblical subject. He preferred to paint subjects of the every-day-life and did so beautifully – going against the taste of most art critics of the time. While the Classica Academies strived to hide the real features of painting, by working realistically, the Impressionists wished to show their work primarily as paintings. This meant that these artists, including Monet, did not mind the two-dimensional aspect of painting.

In Terrace at the Seaside, Sainte-Adresse, Monet divided the composition into three horizontal and almost equal areas. The bottom of the canvas consists of the terrace, with two people sitting in the forefront and a couple standing next to the edge of the sea. Both men wear hats, and the women have white parasols. The garden is well tended and is composed of red and white flowers on the left, as well as on the forefront. The right side of the canvas also is filled with colorful, vibrant flowers and Monet added some blue flowers as well. This lively vegetation grows next to a red-brown wooden fence.

There are two flags on the terrace, being that the one on the right is red. The way Monet divides the composition into three strips has been compared to the French flag by art historians. The painter most probably observed this scene from the second floor of the house so that he could grasp the idea of a high perspective.

The sea was painted with loose brush strokes with tonalities of blue. There are some sailboats close to the terrace, but most are on the faraway horizon. The Impressionist also included some larger ship in the distance and several points of smoke rising to the sky.
