Low Tide at Varengeville (Marée basse à Varengeville) – Claude Monet Painting – Impressionist Art - Canvas Prints
This highly sensual representation of the cliff is tempered by the bottom part of the painting. The transparency, the reflections, the quietness and horizontality of the water are a counterpoint which softens the verticality and density of the rocks. The puddles of seawater in the foreground are highly poetic. They bring to mind the harmonies of sky and water dear to Boudin, who excelled in the representation of low tides and quiet water caught between the sand and the rocks. The style of this work follows in the wake of the art of Eugène Boudin and Charles Daubigny, two artists highly regarded by Monet during his entire life, and who made a strong impression on him in his youth.
The cliff and the low tide make up a strong group which is counterbalanced, like an attenuated echo, by the left-hand side of the painting. Here, the elements are blurred, the colours are diluted and become monochrome (the sand and the cliff in the distance), while the sky delicately links the different parts.
