About Claude Monet Pillow Case - Musart on Pillows - The Poppy Field (1873)

This Claude Monet Jacquard Pillow is part of our original collection, Musart on Pillows and is made out of Jacquard Weave Fabric. Jacquard weaving consists of the interweaving of two kinds of yarn: warp threads (10,500 threads in 100% cotton) and weft threads (cotton, wool, linen). This extremely precise technique makes it possible to interweave around 80 threads / cm². This technique results in obtaining a point of great finesse, it also allows to use a multitude of colors. The French Impressionist artist, Claude Monet painted The Poppy Field in 1873 on his return from the United Kingdom in 1871 when he settled in Argenteuil with his family until 1878. It was a time that provided the artist with great fulfillment as a painter, despite the failing health of Camille. Paul Durand-Ruel, Monet’s art dealer, helped support him during this time, where he found great comfort from the picturesque landscapes that surrounded him and provided him with plenty of subject matter from which to choose, It was a time that Monet’s Plein Air works would develop, and this particular painting was shown at the first impressionist exhibition of 1874. This beautifully depicted summer’s day is captured in all its glory with the vibrant poppies complementing the wispy clouds in a clear blue sky. In the landscape, a mother and a child pain the foreground and another in the background are merely a pretext for drawing the diagonal line that structures the painting. Two separate color zone are established, one dominated by red, the other by a bluish green. The young woman with the sunshade and the child in the foreground are probably the artist’s wife, Camille, and their son Jean. Monet diluted the contours and constructed a colorful rhythm with blobs of paint starting from a sprinkling of poppies; the disproportionately large patches in the foreground indicate the primacy he put on visual impression. A step towards abstraction had been taken. More details on Claude Monet Pillow Case – Musart on Pillows – The Poppy Fields (1873)

Claude Monet was considered as the French painter that founded Impressionist painting. He became world-famous in the late 20th century and an inspiration to an entire new generation of artists. Claude was raised into the Catholic church and was supposed to become the inheritor of the family business, selling ship supplies and equipment. His father was disapproving of his interest in Art and wanted his son to pursue more practical avenues. His mother, however, was a singer and supported the young Monet’s desire to become an artist. Disappointed with traditional art education in Le Havre, moved to Paris in his early twenties, where he met Charles Gleyre, Renoir, Bazille and Sisley. These artists would share Monet’s desire to set new beauty standards in conventional settings and things. The group were strongly opposed to Classicism; this desire would blossom into what we now recognize as the Impressionist movement. They worked outside, which had become possible because paint was now available in tubes). They focused on daily life scenes without symbolism or an underlying message. Of all his famous works, his series on Water Lilies is one of the most important and enduring, truly showing the depth and breadth that the Impressionist movement contained. The series is split all over the world and housed in a variety of venerable museums.
