Claude Monet - Women in the Garden

Year: 1866-1867 oil on canvas cm 205x255

Preserved at: Musée d'Orsay, Paris, France.

Claude Monet painted Women in the Garden "en plein air", completing the work in his atelier. Camille Doncieux, who would later become his wife, was his model for the women in the picture. To finish the clothes in the most fashionable style, Claude Monet used illustrations from women's magazines.

Women in the Garden was presented at the Paris Salon of 1867, where however it was not appreciated. Only Émile Zola paid attention to the work and made a suggestive description of it: «The sun fell straight on the skirts of a shining whiteness; the faded shadow of a tree outlined a great gray veil on the avenues, on the clothes brightened by the sunlight. Nothing more strange as an effect. You have to love your time immeasurably to dare so much, clothes that the shadow and the sun divide in two ».
