Abstract

This shows a wintry early morning view towards two of the narrow islands of trees at Bennecourt near Giverny on the River Seine. By 1890 Monet complemented his on-the-spot Impressionist practice with extensive re-working in the studio. This resulted in many pictures with close-toned atmospheric harmonies. This is most famously evident in his Rouen Cathedral and haystack series, but can also be seen in this work.
