Fisherman's Cottage at Varengeville - Description

Claude Monet anchors his painting "Fisherman's Cottage on the Cliffs at Varengeville" with the solid like of the horizon, cutting straight through the center of the image in bright blue. This clear plane gives the viewer's eye something to hold onto as a point of reference. The sky above is a peaceful bright blue, dotted with fluffy white clouds. Brushstrokes here are not visible, as a wash of color is employed. The sea below moves from bright blue at the horizon line to green and light blue near the shore. The sea is painted with horizontal brushstrokes, giving the impression of waves and movement. Several white boats dot the sea, their sails contrasting beautifully with the dark water. The center of the image is taken up with the fisherman's cottage, rising from a tangle of hedges and flowers. The cottage and its plants employ an autumnal palette of oranges, browns and yellows, in sharp contrast with the blue and green of the sea. The plant life is painted in pure Impressionistic style, with bright colors placed side by side with no mixing of pigment, except in the viewer's eye. The very bottom of the image contains a tangle of bright red and yellow flowers, painted lovingly and in great detail. "Fisherman's Cottage on the Cliffs at Varengeville" is a study in contrasting colors, using contrasting brushstrokes, to beautiful and soothing effect.
