The Japanese Footbridge – Monet – 1000 pieces


The Japanese Bridge
Deeply admiring nature’s central role in Japanese culture, Monet here fuses Japanese motifs with his impressionist palette and brushstrokes to posit a hybrid, transcendent understanding of nature’s primacy. He first seriously explored translating his garden at Giverny into paint in the summer of 1899, producing a series of 12 views of its light-dappled surface, arching footbridge, and surrounding flora, especially the water lilies that enchanted him. He exhibited the paintings, including this one, at the Durand-Ruel Gallery in Paris the following year.

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.
