Notes

Summary:
The monumentality of the famous cliffs at the coastal resort of Etretat in Normandy is not typical of most of Monet's other subjects. He usually chose a quiet corner of a meadow or stretch of river for his landscapes. The Etretat painting does, however, serve as a typical example of the Impressionist style. There is an emphasis on atmospheric conditions and the effects of light as the day progresses. Colors are vibrant and applied to the canvas in separated brushstrokes that create the illusion of motion in the water. Close examination of the setting sun reveals Monet's technique of applying one color of paint over another while still wet, achieving a partial mixture of colors but not a blending.
