CLAUDE MONET

VALLEY OF THE PETITE CREUSE, 1889

About the Artwork

The striking effects of Monet's several paintings of the Creuse Valley in central France are achieved through complex, superimposed layers of color, as he combined bold brushstrokes with intricate passages made up of many small touches. Delayed by bad weather while painting his Creuse scenes, Monet hired workmen to strip the newly budded leaves from a tree in the valley so that he would not have to change his composition.
