J. M. W.Turner

  • After painting in watercolors at the beginning of his career, he began painting landscapes in oils.

  • He became less and less interested in showing nature in realistic detail.

  • He concentrated on the effects that light and atmosphere have on subject matter.

  • In time, light and atmosphere became the most important part of Turner’s works.

Haystacks (Monet)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Wheatstacks (End of Summer)

Haystacks is the title of a series of impressionistpaintings by Claude Monet. The primary subjects of all of the paintings in the series are stacks of hay that have been stacked in the field after the harvest season. The title refers primarily to a twenty-five canvas series (Wildenstein Index Number 1266-1290) begun the autumn of 1890 and continued through the following spring, using that year's harvest. Some use a broader definition of the title to refer to other paintings by Monet with this same theme. The series is known for its thematic use of repetition to show differences in perception of light across various times of day, seasons, and types of weather. The subjects were painted in fields near Monet's home in Giverny, France.

The series is among Monet's most notable works. Although the largest collections of Monet's work are held in Paris at the Musée d'Orsay and Musée Marmottan Monet, Boston, Massachusetts at the Museum of Fine Arts, New York City at the Metropolitan Museum and Museum of Modern Art and Tokyo at the National Museum of Western Art,[1] six of the twenty-five haystacks pieces are currently housed at the Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, United States.[2][3][4][5] The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts, United States holds two,[6][7] and The Louvre in Paris, France holds one. Other museums that hold parts of this series in their collection include the Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, Connecticut (which also has one of five from the earlier 1888-9 harvest),[8]National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom,[9]Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States,[10]Kunsthaus Zürich in Zürich, Switzerland, and Shelburne Museum, Shelburne, Vermont, United States.[11] Several private collections also hold Haystack paintings.

New project

New Project

  • Use pastel as the medium

  • Draw a part of an object from an unusual angle-like Monet did with Rouen Cathedral

  • Parts of the object must go off the paper

    2. Draw an ordinary scene around you-such as a classroom of students, the cafeteria at lunch, movie theater scene, etc.

  • Parts of the scene must go off the paper-like Japanese prints did
