Morning On The Seine (Matinée Sur La Seine) – Claude Monet Painting – Impressionist Art - Posters
During the summer and early fall of 1896 and 1897, Monet rose at 3:30 each morning, well before dawn. Already installed in his house and growing gardens in Giverny, he would equip himself with dew-resistant clothing and head across the road and fields towards the confluence of the river Epte and the Seine. Rowing just a short distance from the shore, he would board his Bateau-atelier and set off downstream to a calm bend in the river. Each morning, weather permitting, he would work on numerous canvases as the sun rose, capturing the effects of the lightening sky and clarifying reflections and contrasts between the water, woods and clouds. An assistant from his garden would join him on these trips, maneuvering and organizing the canvases for the artist as the dawn progressed. The details of his daily sojourns were captured by the journalist Maurice Guillemot, who provided an animated account of the artists quotidian life at Giverny in the last years of the nineteenth century.
