Service Description

Paint a stunning picture of The Cliff Walk at Pourville is an 1882 painting by the French Impressionist painter Claude Monet. It currently resides at the Art Institute of Chicago. Monet completed Walk on the Cliff at Pourville in 1882 where he visited Normandy in order to find some escape from personal & professional pressures. It was 3years since the death of Camille, & he had a new arrangement with Alice Hoschede whom he would later marry following her husband's death in 1892. At this time, once again, Monet was plagued by financial worries. An economic recession in France had greatly affected the sales of his works & he was less than keen on the forthcoming Impressionist exhibition due to differences within the group. He settled in the fishing village of Pourville for a time & became increasingly encouraged by his new surroundings. Alice & her children joined him during the summer. It is thought that the 2 young women depicted are Marthe & Blanche, 2 of Alice's daughters, while other commentators suggest the woman is Alice herself accompanied by one of her children. In this work, Monet addressed the problem of inserting figures into a landscape without disrupting the unity of its painterly surface. He integrated these elements with one another through texture & color. The grass composed of short, brisk, curved brushstrokes, appears to quiver in the breeze, & subtly modified versions of the same strokes & hues suggest the women's wind-whipped dresses and shawls and the undulation of the sea. X-radiographs show that Monet reduced the rocky outcropping at the far right to balance the proportions of sea and sky.
