The Corniche of Monaco - Description

In "The Corniche of Monaco," Claude Monet places the viewer on a brightly colored yellow path, leading right to the center of the painting. A figure waits at the crest of the hill, looking back at the viewer. On either side of the path, lush plants in green and yellow are shown. These plants are painted quickly, using brushstrokes that move in all directions, including horizontally, vertically and diagonally. The plants grow taller, moving from the path to the edge of the canvas. They also become darker, becoming nearly blue-black. In the left of the canvas, the sea is shown. The water is remarkably calm, showing no waves. The water is rendered in yellow on the edge of the canvas and deepening to blue in the center. This same blue is shown in the hillside behind. The hills are painted as a wash of blue and yellow with details picked out in bright blue slashes of color. The yellow in the sea reappears as the color of the bright sky above and highlights in the blue mountain. "The Corniche of Monaco" is set on a strict grid, with the horizon of sea and sky designating a horizontal plane and the mountain in the center providing a vertical point. "The Corniche of Monaco" is a soothing painting, executed with style and skill.
