Claude Oscar Monet visited the town of Bordighera, located on the Italian Riviera and nearby the border between France and Italy, in 1884. He initially intended on working only three weeks on the location but stayed about three months. In a letter to Auguste Rodin, a fellow friend and painter, he wrote about his excitement in seeing the landscapes and the vibrant light of the Mediterranean.
During the 1800s, Monet traveled extensively through Europe searching landscapes to portray and building his career as an artist. In 1883, the painter and his second wife, Alice Hoschedé, found a small town called Giverny and rented a house for their family. Even so, Monet continued traveling for about a decade, until he finally settled down in his countryside home. With his upcoming success in his artistic career, the painter was able to purchase many properties surrounding his house – which he also was able to buy – and there created a beautiful garden that can be visited until today.
The oil painting View Of Bordighera is one of many landscape paintings the artist concluded in his travels. This artwork, similar to Bordighera 1, shows a faraway view of the city from behind native vegetation. There are tall trees and full bushes of green and ochre leaves in the forefront of the composition. Farther into the background, the city of Bordighera is represented with simple and Impressionistic strokes of pastel colors. The sea and sky are calm and hold different shades of blue. With pure white dots in the sky, Monet represents a couple of birds over the city.
Monet worked mostly en plein air, meaning he painted outside so he could observe the landscape and the natural lighting, as did the other Impressionists. During a time in his career, the painter concluded he had better results when he gave the final touches of his art in his studio, causing his colleagues to frown upon his methods. One of the factors that influenced this group of artists to work in nature was the shock of the Oriental culture that went against modern times in Europe. The Japanese woodcut prints were popular with the Impressionists and portrayed subjects of the ordinary life, and scenes in nature.
