The cliff walk at pourville is an 1882 painting by the french impressionist painter claude monet. The various elements of the painting are unified through brushwork; short, crisp brushstrokes were used to paint the grasses of the cliff, the women's drapery and the distant sea. A sense of movement suggested by painterly calligraphy was a property of monet's work in the 1880s, and is here used to connote the effect of a summer wind upon figures, land, water, and clouds moving across the sky. Claude monet (1840 - 1926), the founder of impressionism, was one of the most influential landscape painters in the history of art. Born in paris, monet was enrolled in the studio of glenyre, where he met renoir, sisley, and bazille, who became the core of the impressionist group. Painting outdoors, he broke the tradition of portraying a subject literally by conveying the fleeting effects of atmosphere, time of day, and season upon color and light. Eliminating black and gray from his palette, he represented natural color like a prism, breaking it down into its individual components, often painting a series of the exact same view under different light and weather conditions. Monet brought the study of the transient effects of natural light to its most refined expression, ultimately becoming a forerunner of 20th century modernism.
