: Poppy Field.
In the poppy field Monet evokes by a sowing of coloured spots the tactile feeling of the walkers in a field by a heat day of summer.
The painting returns vibrating the effects of light. This picture is one of most famous of impressionism.
The impressionists knew that there are three colors the primary, red, blue and the yellow, complementary between them and giving by mixture the secondary colors green, orange and purple.
As they sought to make the light natural with a maximum of fidelity, they used these pure colors. But this implied a thorough knowledge of the theory of the colors and an tireless research aiming at making the way truest and most natural what the eye of the painter perceives.
