Music in the Tuileries Gardens

1862


Birth of modern art

Edouard Manet

Music in the Tuileries Gardens

1862

Manet’s painting 'Music in the Tuileries Gardens' at first seems to record an everyday scene from modern life – a disorganised crowd listening to an open-air concert. The artist has in fact carefully composed a cultural ‘self-portrait’ as the work contains numerous identifiable sitters, including Manet himself.

Also, how did this painting show the influence of the birth of photography during that time? (Hint: See what happens to the depiction of people along the edges of the work)

Birth of modern art

Subject:Misty view of seaport at sunrise

Hurried & vigorous brushwork/dabs

Dispersed/ all-over composition

AIM: To capture an instantaneous sensation -- the shimmering surface of water, caring less about detail.

No distinction between foreground, middle ground nor background.

Claude Monet

Impression: Sunrise

1872

This work changed the concept of a ‘completed’ artwork. A ‘sketch’ is now deemed by Monet as worthy of exhibiting


Birth of modern art

“What does the canvas depict? Look at the catalogue.”

“Impression: Sunrise”

“Impression -- I was sure of it. I was just telling myself that, since I was impressed, there had to be some impression in it… and what freedom, what ease of workmanship! Wall-paper in its embryonic state is more finished than this seascape.”

~ Louis Leroy

Claude Monet

1840 -1926


Birth of modern art

This painting depicts a popular boating and bathing establishment with an adjacent floating café, on the Seine near Bougival to the west of Paris. In the summer of 1869 Monet was living near La Grenouillère with his mistress, Camille, and their son. Working alongside Renoir, he painted sketches of the scene in a very fresh and direct manner, possibly in preparation for a slightly larger canvas, now lost.The exceptionally free handling of Monet's painting may in part be due to the canvas being a sketch for what was to be a more ambitious composition painted back in the studio. He uses broad areas of colour to indicate the boats moored in the shadows, while dots in the lighted water in the background represent a party of bathers in the river.

Birth of modern art

1880s, Monet began to experiment with series of pictures that allowed him to capture the changes from one time to another.

- Devoted himself to capturing the flux of nature

Series:

Trains arriving at the Gare Saint Lazare, Rouen Cathedral, haystacks, poplars and waterlilies

The changing conditions of light – affected by atmosphere, time of day, and season remained his theme
