Bathing at La Grenouillere - Description

In 1869, Monet visited the resort town of La Grenouillere. This popular vacation spot boasted a floating restaurant and calm waters for bathing. Monet, of course, couldn't resist such images and he painted these bathers and the scene multiple times during his vacation. "Bathing at La Grenouillere" places the viewer in the middle of a lively and vibrant scene. Multiple rowboats of varied colors dominate the bottom of the canvas, in shades of brown and green. The highlighting on the boats is quite striking. The boat nearest the viewer in the lower right is picked out in bright red outlines. The painting is bisected by a walkway, containing bathers in black costumes on the right and ladies in formal dress on the left. More bathers appear in the water, although their features are difficult to distinguish from the ripples and waves of the water. Overall, figures here are treated as abstract shapes and spots of color, rather than individuals who require a specific shape and pattern. Trees hang over the entire scene, and are painted quickly here with thick paint. Individual brushstrokes are easily discerned. The water in "Bathing at La Grenouillere" is dramatically rendered, moving from white near the horizon to brownish black near the viewer. "Bathing at La Grenouillere" shows Monet taking Impressionism to new heights, embracing color and light over realism.
