Haystacks at Giverny

Haystacks at Giverny - Description

Claude Monet first saw the haystacks near his house in Giverny while on a walk. The 15- to 20-foot-tall stacks of grain would have been hard to miss, not only because of their size, but because of their continued presence. Field workers stacked the grain from the harvest while waiting for the threshing machine to come. This could take months. Monet originally thought he would paint two canvases of the haystacks, but he ended up painting 25 in a one-year period. The stationary subjects allowed Monet to continue to learn about, and explore, color. He painted the stacks at different times of day, in different seasons, and from different perspectives. In "Haystack at Giverny" several haystacks are shown, all painted in different colors. The haystack closest to the viewer is deep orange, shot through with purple and red. To the left of the canvas, another haystack appears. It is painted in a deeper orange and yellow, shot through with brown. Trees stand in a row in the back of the canvas, painted in a deep green, and a surprising amount of purple. Purple also appears in the mountains behind and the grass below. Purple is a lovely contrast to the orange and yellow of the haystacks, and gives "Haystack at Giverny" just the right amount of punch and visual interest to keep the viewer captivated.
