About

The legendary hills of Giverny come to life in this impressionist oil on canvas by the French painter Blanche Hoschedé-Monet. The lasting influence of her stepfather, Claude Monet, can be felt in the brilliant jewel-toned palette that permeates the canvas, where Hoschedé-Monet deftly captures the rolling hills of Giverny. It is a beautiful depiction of the landscape that she came to know most intimately while both assisting and painting alongside her stepfather. Echoes of Monet's 1889 Creuse Valley series can be felt in Hoschedé-Monet's composition and sweeping brushwork, which perfectly captures the atmosphere of this serene landscape. The view is captured from the top of the hills that rise above Giverny on the village's north side. The wooded hills of Grand Val are seen in the distance, while the stone walls dividing the plots of land are deftly suggested with a few summary strokes. A vibrant patchwork of green and violet fields and freshly plowed earth create a colorful frieze on the hillside that dominates the central part of the composition. The strong shadows and haystacks suggest the afternoon light of late summer, as does the intensity of color. Masterfully utilizing both texture and light, Hoschedé-Monet creates a wonderful sense of atmospheric perspective through a blend of broken and blended brushwork and a rich impasto. As a whole, it embodies the rural ideal that Monet and his followers sought to capture. Blanche Hoschedé-Monet was born in Paris on November 10, 1865, to Ernest and Alice Hoschedé. Her father was an affluent businessman and art patron who collected Impressionist paintings, including those of Claude Monet. In 1878, however, the family became impoverished and were forced to declare bankruptcy. They eventually moved to the Parisian suburb of Poissy, where they shared a home with the Monet family. After Camille Monet's death in 1879, Alice Hoschedé and Monet eventually married in 1892. Hoschedé-Monet began to paint when she was 11 years old, and she became Monet's instant protégé. He advised the young artist against academic training, and instead the pair embarked on an artistic journey that encompassed gardening and painting. In 1888, Hoschedé-Monet began submitting works to the Paris Salon; she was not accepted, however, until she showed at the Salon des Independants in 1905, where Durand-Ruel purchased one of her works. After her mother and husband’s death, Hoschedé-Monet returned to Giverny in 1914 to care for her stepfather as his eyesight and health deteriorated. During this time, Monet was working on his mural-sized Nympheas (Water Lilies). The relationship between Monet and his stepdaughter was enhanced by their mutual devotion to the gardens at Giverny. Both were avid gardeners, and nature became the canvas for their artistic ideals. After Monet’s death in 1926, Hoschedé-Monet began to exhibit her works again at the Paris Salon and was quite successful. Today, her works are extremely rare and seldom available for acquisition. Being one of the few successful female impressionist artists, her work is an important addition to any collection of 19th-century art.
