Claude Monet's painting “Tulips of the Netherlands” was painted immediately after the French impressionist genius visited Holland in 1871 or, as it is often called, the country of tulips. Seeing all the beauty that a wonderful country is fraught with, the French author could not help but reflect this in his brilliant work.
The result was another masterpiece. The work itself symbolizing the Netherlands was completed in 1872. Monet, in his characteristic impressionist style, painted not one such picture, but several, but unlike the series “The Cathedral in Rouen”, it was not the time of day that changed, but the view from which the work was done.
In all the paintings, whole fields are covered with multi-colored, large blankets of tulips, also one or two mills appear on the canvas, as well as a typical house in the Dutch village. The work was created in the genre of symbolism, since the canvas depicts everything that is typical of the Netherlands, first of all, the endless river of tulips and mills, which are also a symbol of the country.
The variety of different colors in the picture indicates not only a large number of tulip species, but also how diverse nature can be, the author tries to convey this feeling of an unforgettable first look when such a landscape appears in front of a person.
Monet approached the writing of this work with his inherent seriousness, responsibility and enthusiasm, and this is confirmed by the large amount of work done when painting from various angles.
There is no doubt that before painting, the artist more than once went around the whole field, trying to penetrate this problem from the inside. The French author, with the help of his own understanding and overwork, is trying to capture what will be done in the future using the latest technology.
