Fishing Boats - Description

Claude Monet lived most of his life near the sea. The water is prominent in the vast majority of his paintings, peeking out on the horizon, swelling over rocks, or reflecting the images above. Monet also became interested in painting images of boats, both in and out of the water. Monet was fond of painting the same image repeatedly. He wrote, "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). This painting of fishing boats depicts multiple boats on the shore. Each is painted with at least a small amount of black, a color the artist shunned early in his career. The boats themselves are painted in remarkable detail. The boat nearest the viewer even has a number visible. The sand is full of equipment: ropes, anchors, rags, pots and nets. The poles of the boats all point out to sea, drawing the viewer's eye in that direction. The tide appears to be coming in, and the sea is frothing with white waves breaking over green and blue water. Just a small sliver of the sky is visible in blue and green. This painting of fishing boats shows Monet stretching the boundaries of Impressionism, adding in detail and using new and bold colors.
