David Dunlop Paints Monet’s Waterlilies in Giverny

Painting Demonstration Excerpt from the program “Monet’s Waterlilies” – Program 102 of Emmy-Award winning PBS Series Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop.
David visits the enchanting village of Giverny, 45 miles northwest of Paris, which was the last home of Claude Monet. Monet first moved to Giverny in 1883 at the age of 43 and lived in his specially designed home and gardens until the end of his life in 1926. David describes the evolution of Impressionism from its experimental beginnings with Monet and his friends working in the Gleyre studio in Paris in 1862 — Sisley, Renoir, Bazille, Pissarro – to its later stage (and beyond) of explosive color, loose brushwork, complementary color effects, vivid sunshine and sensual delight. David discusses and demonstrates Monet’s methods as a mid-career Impressionist at Giverny and his evolution into expressionism with his carefully developed and cultivated waterlily garden as his inspiration. David will discuss and demonstrate Monet’s painting process, his philosophy and lasting influence on painting as he pursued sensation with color. In paint, David will present Monet’s aggregative techniques and his revolutionary new language for releasing color from the outlines of static shapes. SimmonsArt Inc. © 2013
