Transcript of Claude Monet: Nimphee (1926)

First Observation
My first observation was that this picture takes place outside in a very beautiful setting. There is a wealth of plant life and green in the picture. I noticed there is a bridge that crosses the painting and I'm thinking that maybe the bridge is symbolic of something?
Claude found tranquility in nature and wanted to share that with people through his paintings.
The colors used in this painting suggest calmness and serenity.
I noticed details in the water, water lilies perhaps? I also notice cattails on the left and right side of the painting.
All in all, this is a beautiful piece of art. This place is somewhere I would escape to in order get some peace and think about life.
The bridge in the picture appears to be a place he could sit/stand and soak in the beauty he was surrounded by.
I would say that based on the technique, colors, and what is painted, Claude Monet, probably felt as though this was a place to go when he wanted to be surrounded by beauty. It appears to be a great place to visit and appreciate.
Claude Monet: Nimphee (1926)
I studied Claude Monet and his life to learn about his work. He was a fan of nature and preferred to paint scenes from his own property, just as this one.
The brush strokes appear to be swift but not hurried, there seems to be a lot of thought and time put into this piece.
