Claude Monet is not just an artist, not only a great genius, but also the founder of a whole direction of painting. Impressionism appeared and gained popularity with his light hand. The master was born in Paris, then moved with his family to Le Havre. He spent his childhood and youth in constant contact with nature. Monet did not study well, but he drew very well. His first caricature pieces adorned the window of a single painting shop. It should be noted that these sketches were very popular among local residents.
Claude Monet had a unique ability to see colors. This is due to the lens removal surgery carried out in 1912. After that, the master’s vision was somewhat distorted. He saw white and light shades with an ultraviolet glow. However, the feature did not spoil the artist’s paintings. They acquired new paints.
In 1888, while still possessing the usual perception of color for a healthy person, Claude Monet completed work on a still life, "Flowers in a Vase." The canvas is made in a manner characteristic of the master. Large strokes alternate with the drawing of small details.
In the center of the composition are thin branches and several buds. The flower is very fragile, delicate. To match it, a vase with a narrow neck, made of glass, was selected. The background is quite restrained, the dominant shade of gray-blue. However, due to the contrast, the canvas does not look dull.
