The eighth offering in our new ART WALK Series features a painting by Claude Monet entitled "Irises". From one medium to the next, artists express their use of colour. Inspired by Monet, our dyer has successfully captured some of the emotion and colour in Monet's masterpiece.
Born in Paris, artist Claude Monet (1840 - 1925), Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Camille Pissaro formed the nucleus of the monumental Impressionist Movement, which broke away from established artistic expressions. Devoted to painting exclusively outdoors and capturing the transient effects of light and color, Monet often painted multiple images of the same subject at various times of day. His dazzling, densely hued “Irises” depicted the flowers in his famed garden at Giverny and displayed the influence of Japanese floral screens upon his work. [quoted from Art.com]
