- Claude Monet
Monet's light and spontaneous brushwork create splashes of colour. Mrs Monet's veil is blown by the wind, as is her billowing white dress; the waving grass of the meadow is echoed by the green underside of her parasol. She is seen as if from below, with a strong upwards perspective, against fluffy white clouds in an azure sky. A boy, their seven-year-old son, is placed further away, concealed behind a rise in the ground, only visible from the waist up, creating a sense of depth.
