The Windmill On The Onbekende Canal  Amsterdam

Claude Oscar Monet painted The Windmill On The Onbekende Canal Amsterdam in 1874. This was a significant year for him and other modern artists at the time, as they joined to paint together in the region of Paris. This group of artists, which included Pierre Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Edouard Manet, and Alfred Sisley, organized exhibitions for artists whose works did not fit in the molds of the Classic Academies and were rejected from the exhibitions of the Paris Salon. The Impressionists mainly worked en plein air – meaning they left their studios to work on location and create a painting that is a reproduction of their experience and not just an idealized scene painted from memory.

Monet left for the Netherlands for about three months, even though the first Impressionistic exhibition was about to take place at Société Anonyme des Artistes. During his visit in the year of 1874, the artist portrayed many Dutch landscapes, like Amsterdam and Canal in Amsterdam. In The Windmill On The Onbekende Canal Amsterdam, Monet worked very freely and probably en plein air, observing the optical effect of the natural lighting on the scene.

Being significantly influenced by the Oriental culture that was arriving in Europe, Monet and his colleges applied this to their art. The Japanese woodcut prints had bright and pure colors, unusual compositions and subjects of the everyday life and nature, which was an opposition to the Classic standards inherited by the Renassaince masters – like painting realistically and portraying biblical and mythical subjects. Modern artists were leaving their studios and working in direct contact with nature.

In The Windmill On The Onbekende Canal Amsterdam, Monet beautifully portrays a gloomy day in the Dutch capital. The grand windmill is painted with shades of brown, ochre and black – which reflects in the river, as well as the other houses and boats. These constructions are very colorful, with tones of red, yellow and blue, contrasting with the overall gray of the rest of the painting. The sky is mostly gray with some rapid strokes of blue and white. Monet painted this Dutch landscape in an Impressionistic manner, with expressive brush strokes and a balanced color palette.
