One of the majority of Claude Monet’s masterpieces dated 1881 with the author’s own signature and the name “Waves”. The painting was painted using oil painting technique, while it is clear that the master was very fond of depicting the sea, and this work is a vivid representative of this. According to this work, it is clear that the sea is not in a calm state, but it cannot be called a storm.
Great emphasis is placed precisely on the white scallops of the waves, which are formed with the help of foam as a result of turbulent waves and oncoming waves.
In the foreground, bluer and bluer tones can be observed, which create exactly the same foam as green water in the background. In that case, if you look at this work for a long time, you can even feel a certain cold and swell from the cool sea water.
The picture does not convey depressing moods, but most likely more excitement and excitement, and in some cases, anxiety. It seems that a strong wind is about to fly and these already troubled waves will turn into a storm that can hide more than one ship in its abyss.
It may be that at the time of writing the picture, the master experienced exactly those feelings, which he eventually transferred to the canvas. But the work attracts with its freshness. The power of unbridled passions in this ocean of feelings allows us to talk about the romantic background of this picture.
The picture has a lot of sensuality done in cold tones and a lot of dynamics that comes from it. Very harmoniously, the author managed to combine the power of the surf with the artist’s inner experiences, thanks to which the picture looks and is understood by the viewer exactly as much as the author himself wanted. Because of this, complete harmony and a subtle understanding of each stroke made by the master is achieved.
