San Giorgio Maggiore At Dusk
Claude Monet, French Impressionist Painter, 1840-1926 was born in Paris France. He is considered one of the forefathers of the painting style known as Impressionism. His early art career was boosted by his success as a caricature artist in which he did quite well. He later became involved with his own style and palette of colors and paints primarily landscapes.
San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk also known as Sunset in Venice, was painted in the autumn of 1908 in Venice where Monet and his wife Alice had traveled by their own chauffeur-driven car. They stayed first at the Palazzo Barbaro and later at the Hotel Brittania. It was here that he created this masterpiece. During this period he had began losing his eyesight from gray cataracts. Much like many other painters who were afflicted with pain or disease, suffering seemed to provoke him to do his greatest work. The vibrant blue, yellow, and red colors were used by Monet to depict the sunset. Across the lagoon we see Venice, a famous island church in Venice, Italy.
