One of the most masterpieces of Claude Monet dated 1881 with his own signature of the author and the name “Waves”. The picture was written with the help of shale technology, while it is clear that the master was very fond of portraying the sea, and this work is a vivid representative of this. It is clear from this work that the sea is not in a calm state, but you cannot call it a storm either.
Great emphasis is placed on the white scallops of the waves, which are formed with the help of foam as a result of the turbulence of the restless waves and oncoming waves.
In the foreground one can observe bluish and blue tones, which create exactly the same foam as the green water in the background. In that case, if you look at this work for a long time, you can even feel a certain coldness and swell from the cool sea water.
The picture does not convey oppressive moods, and most likely more excitement and excitement, maybe in some cases – anxiety. It seems that a strong wind is about to fly, and these already turbulent waves will turn into a storm that more than one ship can hide in its depths.
It may be that while painting a picture, the master experienced precisely such feelings, which he eventually transferred to the canvas. But it attracts work with its freshness. The power of unbridled passions in this ocean of feelings allows us to talk about the romantic background of this picture.
The picture has a lot of sensuality performed in cold colors and the mass of the dynamics that emanates from it. Very harmoniously, the author was able to combine the power of the sea surf, along with the inner experiences of the artist, so that the picture looks and is understood by the viewer just as much as the author himself wanted. Because of this, complete harmony and subtle understanding of each stroke made by the master is achieved.
