Claude Monet “Dandelions”, the 1900s.

The painting bears its author’s signature
The work belongs to Monet’s late creation phase – up to the beginning of the 20th century. Paintings by Monet of that time, as “Dandelions”, look like decorative pictures, whereas the previous ones are perceived as “bright pieces of nature”, drawn from life.
“Dandelions” look more relative, there is no real space here. Attraction of younger French artists to decorativism indirectly influenced Monet’s paintings. On this picture the flowers do not have an existing “place of location”. The artist does not pay attention to where they grow from. Dandelions are monumentalized, turned into an expressive decorative motive.
At the same time all Monet’s pictorial techniques, that helped him to conquer the world, are seen in “Dandelions” in full measure:
1. This is spontaneity of composition decision prompted by sudden inspiration but not by academic regulations;
2. Careless, defocused depict style being called “emotionality haze” and giving a feeling of psychological resilience.
3. A very rich color palette when the grey colour is filled with countless bright nuances and it consists of multiply colourful elements – pink, blue, yellow, purple, warm, cold…
This nuances palette turns a prosy motive, a dandelion, to a festive sight, when saying in a modern way – to an exciting show.
This painting by Monet, the classical artist of the world art, is of absolute art, museum and collection value.
