: The Magpie.
The work of Monet is not a revolutionist by his subjects but by its invoice. Claude Oscar Monet restores the forms and space by the light and the color. The painting of full air enables him to carry out a perfect unit between the characters or the principal reason and the bottom. The table presented here was painted in outside with Étretat. For the impressionists the force of a landscape must come from itself. The Magpie is a variation around the range of the nuances of the white with sets of lights, shaving and floating shades the whole bathing in a relief specific to the snow-covered landscapes.
Work too innovating for the time will be refused by the jury of the show in 1869.
