The Studio Boat

Claude Oscar Monet concluded the portrayal of his floating art studio entitled The Studio Boat in 1876, although some sources mark the date as 1874. During this time, the artist, his wife, Camille, and their child were living in Argenteuil, coming back to their home country from England because of the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War. They settled in a house nearby the Seine river, a theme present in the work of many Impressionists, Pointillists and Post-Impressionists, like Pierre Auguste Renoir, Paul Signac, Alfred Sisley, Vincent Van Gogh, and many more.

Many modern painters began leaving their studios and working outdoors – or en plein air in French – especially the Impressionists. Because of Monet’s passion for the watery landscape of the Seine, he decided to create a floating studio, that he portrayed in The Studio Boat, as well as in Le Bateau Atelier. This gave him the liberty to sail across the Seine and see it from many different viewpoints – many that can’t be accessed by only staying on dry land. Monet would paint multiple canvases at once since his primary concern was observing the fleeting effects of the natural sunlight.

In the oil painting The Studio Boat, Monet placed the boat centered on the canvas, with a light green structure an ochre-colored roof and a dark bottom part – all which reflect on the water with wavy brushstrokes. The background is filled with many dark and large trees, and the left side has a faraway house that can be partially seen from behind the trees. The sky is light violet-blue, similar to the pigments of the river, which also reflect the figures in the background, blending the many colors of the scene. This composition gives a sense of loneliness, as the boat silently floats on the calm waters of the Seine.

The Japanese artists served as an important source of inspiration to the Impressionists, especially Monet. These exotic woodcut prints brought a different aesthetic than the Classic oil paintings seen at the Paris Salon, and they fascinated modern painters. With vivid colors, dark contours and portrayals of the exceptional nature of their surroundings, the Japanese art was the perfect motif for the Impressionists to leave traditional European standards behind and begin something new in art.
