Wheatstacks, Snow Effect, Morning - Description

Claude Monet was a bit of a fair-weather painter. The majority of his paintings depict sunny skies, and his letters are full of bitter discussions of painting days lost due to rain. However, in the winter of 1891, Monet began a series of paintings showing stacks of wheat and grain in the fields near his home in Giverney. He was interested in how these shapes caught the light, how they looked at different times of day, and how they looked at different times of year. This also meant the artist did have to paint in less than optimal conditions. In "Wheatstacks, Snow Effect, Morning," the artist ventured out on a cold, wintry morning to capture the look of these stacks against a wintry landscape. The color palette used here is remarkably limited. The sky and the ground below is nearly the same color: only a slight addition of white to the ground delineates the horizon. The trees normally visible in these paintings are reduced to minor upright shadows. Several outbuildings are nearly visible, with bright white roofs. Against this muted background, the two wheat stacks rise with deep color and amazing clarity. They are painted with shocking bright red, deep magenta and bright blue. They seem to glow when hit with the sun, and cast deep blue shadows behind them. "Wheatstacks, Snow Effect, Morning" is a bold painting, and remains a warm tone, even though it was painted in very cold conditions.
