A Farmyard In Normandy - Description

Impressionist painters loved to work outdoors, in the sun-filled landscape. They were "A Farmyard in Normandy" was painted near the beginning of Claude Monet's career as an artist. Monet had not yet begun to paint in his characteristic Impressionist style of deep, contrasting brush strokes placed close together. Here, we see Monet painting in a more realistic, documentary style. A bright, light sky covers the top of the image. The center is taken up by barns and outbuildings. The run appears to be coming from the right of the image, as the front of the buildings seem to be in bright light, their roofs casing shadows downward. Trees march from the buildings to the edge of the canvas on the right, painted realistically with gnarled trunks and branches. The center of the painting shows Monet's love of water reflections. And edge of the barn, and the trunks of the trees are shown here. This is a technique the artist would perfect in his series of paintings of Water Lilies. The scene comes alive with animals, including cows, chickens and ducks, and two small human figures. "A Farmyard in Normandy" shows the artist just beginning, learning to experiment and stretch his wings. However, it stands alone as a beautiful painting of life on a farm in the 1800s.
