Monet’s Garden Art

It’s time for Rosewood to share another painting by the father of Impressionism.  We’re bringing you more of Monet’s garden art – for April, it’s a beautiful oil painting from 1872.

‘Springtime’ was painted in Monet’s garden in Argenteuil near Paris, soon after he moved there in late 1871.  It shows his wife Camille sitting on the grass in the dappled sunshine, reading a book.  During that spring, he made several paintings of Camille and her friend in the garden.  (If you’d like to learn more about this work click on the following link to the Monet Springtime Wikipedia page.)

Although Monet painted the picture nearly 150 years ago, it’s only the woman’s clothing that makes that obvious.  The mood and the subject is still completely relevant, and those of us who love gardens can still relate perfectly to this image.  Who doesn’t love sitting under a tree enjoying the warm air and sunshine of spring and summer?

At Rosewood we hope you’ve been taking in the recent spring sunshine while still staying safe.  With most of us having to spend nearly all of our time at home, those of us lucky enough to have our own gardens should really be thankful and enjoy them.  And of course, at Rosewood we are famous for helping gardens thrive.  We are continuing with installations as our business falls into the category of construction and maintenance, so why not call us if you think irrigation could help your garden?  We’re waiting to hear from you on 01727 811448.  And if you’d like to see more of Monet’s garden art, you can come back to our blog for one each month this year.  Thanks for visiting.
