Haystacks / Wheatstacks
$189.00 – $705.00
It is a part of a series of impressionist paintings done by Claude Monet depicting stacks of hay during harvest season.
It is among Monets earliest works that uses a repeated theme to show contrasts in the perception of light depending on the time of day, the seasons as well as the type of weather it is painted in. The painting shows his maturity as an artist as well as the intensity of the study he did on light and atmospheric conditions.
The haystacks are somewhat a powerful depiction of the beauty and prosperity that was enjoyed in countryside Normandy in France.
Being the perfectionist that he is, Haystacks is among one of Monets works that was able to survive his own criticism and destruction.
