|BACK TO THE ARTIST|
Bouquet of Sunflowers, 1881
|Artist||Monet, Oscar-Claude||Monet was the most consistent member of the Impressionist group and carried their practices to their most radical conclusion. In his late canvases he dissolved forms completely in coloured mists. Unlike other Impressionists, he never chafed against formlessness or tried to revive architectural elements in his compositions.
In this canvas Monet is primarily interested in rendering the effects of light on form and impregnating the surrounding atmosphere with colour. Yet the individual forms still stand out distinctly from this atmosphere.
