Monet - Poppies at Argenteuil

Poppies at Argenteuil, 1873

The woman and child in the foreground are Monet's first wife, Camille and their six-year-old son, Jean. Some scholars speculate that the pair in the background may also be Camille and Jean.

In its delicately brushed and thinly painted tones, Poppies at Argenteuil is different from many works of Monet's Argenteuil period. The lilting rhythm and soft brushing of the figures is tender, but the enlarged scarlet patches that Monet selected from the detail of the field are the keynotes of the work.
