Description of Claude Monet's painting “Poplars”


Claude Monet is a famous French impressionist painter. The main goal of these artists was such an image of the world that would cause positive emotions for those who will consider the picture. Monet, as a representative of the Impressionists, did it very well.

Here is the picture of Poplar. At first glance, these are ordinary poplars, but after all, how many of them are unusual and unique!

Poplars grew on the banks of a river called Ept. It was here, nearby, the artist himself lived and worked. In 1891, Monet decided to start drawing these wonderful poplars, because their beauty should have been appreciated not only by him, but by the whole world. Of course, when drawing this famous picture, Claude did not even imagine that she would receive such great fame.

The artist used a technique - the reflection of poplars in the lake. Due to this, the picture seems even deeper. It seems that these poplars are endless, as if they are stretching into the distance, down to the horizon. The sky is also reflected in the water. Thanks to this, the already blue lake becomes even cleaner, transparent and bottomless. In the picture you can see three primary colors - blue, green and blue. Blue symbolizes purity, green symbolizes infinity, and white symbolizes peace. Trees resemble statues that have long stood peacefully next to each other.

Monet chose poplar as the subject of his drawing, because they made up most of his native nature. He painted, looking directly at them, trying to convey their true beauty. When the artist found out that they want to cut them down, he immediately acquired a plot with trees. And the reason for this was not only that he did not have time to complete his picture. Simply, the artist did not want these poplars to remain only in his drawing: live, they looked much more beautiful.
