About the artwork

Seeking lower rent and greater rusticity, Monet moved from suburban Argenteuil to Vétheuil, and briefly Poissy, before settling in Giverny, a small town about 70 kilometres north-west of Paris, in 1883, where he would live until his death in 1926. Before he created his famed gardens and waterlily pond, his paintings primarily explored the countryside surrounding his new home. This picture is one of his first depicting the nearby fields of brilliant red poppies, their form and texture suggested by the size, shape and direction of the brushstrokes, while the juxtaposition of complementary reds and greens gives the painting a vibrant intensity.
