The painting “Tulips of Holland” by Claude Monet was written immediately after the French impressionist genius visited Holland in 1871 or as the country of tulips is often called. Having seen all the beauty that a wonderful country conceals in itself, the French author could not refrain from displaying it in his ingenious work.
The result was another masterpiece. The work itself, symbolizing the Netherlands, was completed in 1872. Monet, in his characteristic impressionist style, wrote not one such picture, but several, but unlike the series “Cathedral in Rouen”, it was not the time of day that changed, but the angle from which the work was done.
In all the paintings, the whole fields are covered with multi-colored, large blankets of tulips, and one or two mills appear on the canvas, as well as a typical house in the Dutch village. The work was created in the genre of symbolism, since the canvas depicts everything that is characteristic of the Netherlands, this is above all, the endless river of tulips and mills, which are also a symbol of the country.
The variety of different colors in the picture testifies not only about the large number of tulip species, but also about how diverse nature can be, the author tries to convey this feeling of an unforgettable first glance when such a landscape appears before a person.
By writing this work, Monet approached, with his inherent seriousness, responsibility and enthusiasm, and this is confirmed by the large amount of work done while writing the picture from different angles.
There is no doubt that before writing a picture, the artist has repeatedly bypassed the entire field, trying to penetrate this problem from the inside. The French author tries to capture with his own understanding and overwork what will be done in the future with the help of the latest technology.
