Low Tide at Varengeville
1060 x 790 • 324 KB
The cliff and the low tide make up a strong group which is counterbalanced by the left hand side of the painting. The elements are blurred and the colour is diluted to become monochrome (the sand and the cliff in the distance) while the sky delicately links the various parts. In February 1882 Monet travelled to Pourville and Dieppe on the Normandy coast and stayed for two months. During this sojourn he produced 36 works.

Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
