Description of Claude Monet's painting "Frost"


The picture was painted by Claude Monet in 1880.

The painter was a true master of landscapes. His impressionist paintings amaze the audience with a special touch and incredibly deep sound.

We feel a special impression of the artist from the fact that he contemplates nature.

Every second, something new happens, the shade of objects is constantly changing due to different lighting. It is influenced by the special weather, atmosphere and other objects nearby. Unusual reflexes - reflections are discarded from each subject. Monet sought to recreate real life in his paintings. That is why he works a lot in nature (and not only on sketches, but also on canvases).

The painting “Frost” is all flooded with unusual sunlight that is felt in every detail. We do not see the sun itself, but it is in a special way refracted in all objects. Nature is incredibly colorful. At first glance, it seems that at this time of the year a certain monotony prevails. But in fact, this is completely untrue. How many colors are put together in white. It is lilac, now bluish, then gray. Each stroke of the painter is incredibly bold. We feel that the nature depicted is alive. It seems that now the wind will rustle or the trees will rustle.

The composition of the picture is deliberately constructed as follows. As if this is a small fragment of the entire life stream. Monet grabs it completely by accident. We do not feel the contours of every subject. They seem to be dissolved in an environment consisting of light and air. All colors are as pure and incredibly sonorous. He does not mix colors on the palette, but puts them next to each other so that they mix only when the viewer looks at the picture.

Many contemporary contemporaries did not understand such a vision of the beauty of nature by impressionists. Such a new perception was foreign to Monet's contemporaries. Only much later came the realization of what these artists wanted to say to the audience. We were able to feel the impulses of their souls shining through every brushstroke.
