Cap Martin

by Claude Monet

Cap Martin - Description

Claude Monet was a disciplined painter, who believed that the truth of a place could be found in painting it over and over. Monet said, ""I know that to paint the sea really well, you need to look at it every hour of every day in the same place so that you can understand its way in that particular spot; and that is why I am working on the same motifs over and over again, four or six times even" (source: http://painting.about.com/library/biographies/blartistquotesmonet.htm). Monet would paint the sea multiple times during his career, from different locations and viewpoints. In "Cap Martin," the sea appears as a blue-green stripe, cutting across the center of the canvas. The current is fast-moving, as no reflections are apparent in it. Rising from the sea are blue cliffs, rendered in deep blue and white paint. These same colors appear in the sky above. The left of the canvas is taken up with a large, curving, undulating set of hedges, painted in green, purple and brown. The mountains appear in a gap in the hedges. The cliff the viewer appears to be standing on is a bright shock of tan. This color does not appear elsewhere in the painting. "Cap Martin" is a bright and joyful look at the sea and the landscape around it.
