Claude Monet #16




Claude Monet’s Third Studio.

"Monet was 76 when he decided he needed a new studio. This one is actually the third one he built on the premises.
After having turned a former barn with western light into his first studio, errected the second one with a big window on the northern facade, Monet decided he wanted the light to fall from the sky, and not from any other direction.
This is why the third studio has huge skylights. The entire roof is made out of glass."

Claude Monet #15



"....
Within a few years by 1899 Monet built a greenhouse and a second studio, a spacious building, well lit with skylights. Beginning in the 1880s and 1890s, through the end of his life in 1926, Monet worked on "series" paintings, in which a subject was depicted in varying light and weather conditions. His first series exhibited as such was of Haystacks, painted from different points of view and at different times of the day. Fifteen of the paintings were exhibited at the Galerie Durand-Ruel in 1891. He later produced several series of paintings including: Rouen Cathedral, Poplars, the Houses of Parliament, Mornings on the Seine, and the Water Lilies that were painted on his property at Giverny.

"....
L'artiste (Claude Monet) y installe son atelier, qui deviendra quelques années plus tard son bureau-salon-atelier lorsqu'il aménagera un deuxième atelier en janvier 1886 dans la grange voisine.
Ce second atelier dit « des Séries » est construit sur les plans de l'architecte Louis Bonnier. Une grande baie vitrée donne de la lumière par la façade nord, côté colline, tandis que sur la façade sud, face aux jardins, s'ouvrent de grandes fenêtres comme on voit sur ces deux cartes."



"Pour voir la grande verrière de ce second atelier, il faut grimper sur la colline surplombant la Ferme de la Côte.
De là-haut, la vue sur la plaine des Ajoux et les prairies est magnifique. On y voit la Ferme de la Côte,
le Hameau, le quartier du Pressoir, la maison de Claude Monet et le nouvel atelier des "Séries"."

Monet’s second studio seen from the main street of Giverny, rue Claude Monet. At Monet’s time, it was used as a studio where Monet stored the paintings for sale, and completed them if necessary. Monet designed the studio to receive northern light.

Claude Monet #14



"....
At the beginning of May 1883, Monet and his large family rented a house and two acres from a local landowner. The house was situated near the main road between the towns of Vernon and Gasny at Giverny. There was a barn that doubled as a painting studio, orchards and a small garden. The house was close enough to the local schools for the children to attend and the surrounding landscape offered an endless array of suitable motifs for Monet's work. The family worked and built up the gardens and Monet's fortunes began to change for the better as his dealer Paul Durand-Ruel had increasing success in selling his paintings. By November 1890 Monet was prosperous enough to buy the house, the surrounding buildings and the land for his gardens.

"Avant de voir quelques documents d'époque, précisons qu'au décès de Claude Monet le 5 décembre 1926 à Giverny, c'est son fils Michel (1878-1966) qui hérite de la maison. Celui-ci laisse sa belle soeur, Blanche Hoschedé-Monet l'occuper. Lorsque Blanche décède, en 1947, le jardin est laissé à l'abandon jusqu'en 1966, date à laquelle Michel Monet lègue la propriété à l'Académie de Beaux-Arts.
Onze ans plus tard, Gérald Van der Kemp entreprend la restauration du jardin. Les travaux commencent en 1977, pour une ouverture au public en 1980.

"....
This room located in his main house at Giverny was turned into his sitting-room after 1890. The picture was made in springtime according to the tulips behind Monet. The photo reveals how much the painter loved flowers. There were at least six vases in his studio on this day! When Monet became successful, he built a new house in the corner of his garden, where he moved his studio. He had now a well lit large room to work in and to store his paintings. The former studio became a place where he used to have a liquor after lunch, where he would sit to read a gardening book or a novel by Maupassant. Monet also used to write many letters. The paintings for sale where displayed in the second studio whereas he kept the ones he cherished too much to sell them in the first studio."
