Claude Monet Poppies at Argenteuil


This scene from nature contrasts with Monet's previous paintings of nature. It is a beautifully balanced scene with the human interest almost incidental. It gives an insight into Monet's view of Nature. He saw nature not as man's instrument, but, something for man to respect and be part of.

The eye is instinctively drawn to the red poppies and their contrast with the blue sky.
