Description of the painting by Claude Monet Sea

Monet Claude Oscar – is one of the most famous French artists – painters. On his account a huge number of unique masterpieces. This also includes the most unusual of his works of art, the painting “Sea”.

The painting was painted on the canvas in one thousand eight hundred eighty-first year by means of an oily technique of execution. It is worth saying that the author was madly in love with portraying the sea, and this picture was no exception.

On it, with rather sullen gray, blue, dark brown, green, yellowish, black and white colors one can observe an image of a wave of the sea and huge, vast, massive, stony rocks. Not calm, the green sea throws small, white from the foam of the wave on the almost gentle rocky shore. Powerful rocks, like ingrown walls, surround the water, as if protecting it.

On the right you can see the boundless and boundless sea space, embodying freedom and giving a sense of suspense. If you raise your eyes a little higher, you can see yellowish colors gradually turning blue.

Surely, the author thereby wanted to portray the change of weather from more clear to cloudy and unfavorable. When viewing the picture creates a feeling of some kind of cold, as well as excitement and fear. In general, the work does not create a positive mood, but on the contrary how – would suppress it due to its tough, cold and gloomy color range.

When you look at the picture you get the feeling that the rain is about to start, a strong, fresh sea wind will blow and the waves will not be so calm and harmless. Most likely, the author poured some inner spiritual experiences into the picture, perhaps sorrows or offenses, as a result of which the work turned out to be somewhat gloomy and overwhelming.
