Vetheuil - Description

An Impressionist painting is easy to spot and categorize. The emphasis is on color and light, rather than on photographic realism or geography. Dark colors, such as black, are avoided. Outlines are rarely, if ever used. Contrasting colors are placed side-by-side, so the pigments can mix in the eye of the viewer. Brushstrokes are often short. Claude Monet was a founder of this movement, and he believed in it with all his heart. He once wrote, "I didn't become an impressionist. As long as I can remember I always have been one" (source: All of the Impressionist characteristics are readily displayed in "Vetheuil." The color palette is confined to the pastel, with deep blue only making a minor appearance. Brush strokes are clearly visible. The center of the image is taken up with a church and steeple. However, these buildings are only roughly outlined. The color contrast between the stucco of the walls and the red of the roofs are more important to the painter. Behind the buildings, a hill rises, covered with squares of yellow, red and green. These could be crops or fields of flowers, but it is unclear. The sky above is purple on the horizon, lightening to pink and tan as it moves off the canvas. "Vetheuil" is an Impressionist view of the world, executed with style and grace.
