La Corniche near Monaco, Claude Monet, 1884

La Corniche near Monaco, Claude Monet, 1884

olieverf op doek, h 75cm × w 94cm. More details

In Monet’s time La Corniche was a narrow mountain track; nowadays, it is the main road between Nice and Monaco. Here the sun is high, the lone walker’s shadow short. Monet’s colours glisten: red, green, blue – everything shimmers in the sunlight. The painting was given to the Rijksmuseum already in 1900, when Monet’s work was still entirely unknown in the Netherlands.
