Bouquet of Sunflowers – Monet – 1000 pieces

R320.00

Bouquet of Sunflowers, 1881. While there are similarities between Van Gogh’s and Monet’s Sunflowers, the first painted the individual sunflowers with a much higher level of detail whereas Monet focused more on the composition as a whole. Unlike Van Gogh, Monet painted the sunflowers with no sign of decay. Monet chose seven types of flowers for his still life works – sunflowers were among his most popular and this work accompanied five others to the Impressionist exhibition of 1882. Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo that he liked Monet’s sunflowers better than his own.

Description

Oscar-Claude Monet (1840-1926) is a famous French painter and one of the founders of the Impressionism movement along with his friends Renoir, Sisley and Bazille. Monet rejected the traditional approach to landscape painting and instead of copying old masters, he began learning from his friends and nature itself. Monet observed variations of color and light caused by the daily or seasonal changes and brought these to life in his paintings.
