|Author: Claude Monet|
|Landscape, Painting, Oil on canvas, 65.5x81.5 cm|
|Origin: France, 1884|
In 1883, Monet went with Renoir on a brief trip to the Mediterranean. Both painters visited Bordighera on the Italian Riviera, close to the French border. In 1884, Monet obtained a letter of introduction to a certain M. Moreno, the owner of the "fabulous" estate in Bordighera. On this estate, which Monet called an earthly paradise, he painted five landscapes. In the present canvas the effect of morning is superbly conveyed with a harmony of blue and rose hues produced by the colour of the rising sun. These shades interlacing with the green of the palms, almost subduing it, create a rare rainbow coloration.
