Champ d’ Avoine

Uploaded by MIKEMASON on Nov 22, 2000

The “rebirth” of art in Italy was connected with the rediscovery of ancient philosophy, literature, and science and the evolution of empirical methods of study in these fields. Increased awareness of classical knowledge created a new resolve to learn by direct observation and study of the natural world. Consequently, secular themes became increasingly important to artists, and with the revived interest in antiquity came a new repertoire of subjects drawn from Greek and Roman history and mythology.

Monet returned to France in 1862 after he became ill and was sent home. From there he enrolled in the Charles Gleyre’s studio, but this only turned out to be a disappointment for Monet, but held significance in his life since it is where he met Renoir, Bazille, and Sisley. ...
