Impressione. Levar del sole

Impression. Sunrise

The picture is known by several titles including: "Rising sun impression", or even "Impression at sunrise" or "Monet Rising sun". The painting is presented for the first time in public in 1874 at an exhibition which Monet attends with the other members of the anonymous society and the title is attributed precisely on that occasion; the exhibition and the artists are criticized and are labelled with derogatory intent as "impressionists", but the artists recognize themselves in this appellation, which thus becomes the name of one of the most important artistic movements in history. The painting marks the beginning of this current.

The original oil painting on canvas, measuring 48 x 63 cm, was made in 1872 and is kept in Paris, at the Musée Marmottan Monet. The picture is known by several titles including: "Rising sun impression", or even "Impression at sunrise" or "Monet Rising sun" .The painting is presented for the first time in public in 1874 at an exhibition which Monet attends with the other members of the anonymous society and the title is attributed precisely on that occasion; the exhibition and the artists are criticized and are labelled with derogatory intent as "impressionists", but the artists recognize themselves in this appellation, which thus becomes the name of one of the most important artistic movements in history. The painting marks the beginning of this current, which lasts just over a decade, but becomes a fundamental stage in modern art. The painting represents the port of Le Havre, on the English Channel, at dawn: you can see, in the foreground, a small boat that is returning, perhaps, from night fishing, two other boats that gradually fade on the left; in the background the master masts of large ships and the mechanical means of the port are hardly hinted. The true protagonist of the scene is the rising sun, a trembling orange red disk, which slowly rises reflecting its colours on the water mirror and in the sky. Without taking into account the traditional painting techniques that wants a faithful reproduction of reality, Monet manages to convey sensations and impressions and the landscape wrapped in fog takes on the appearance of an almost fantastic and magical place. In this canvas we can observe the fundamental principles of Impressionism: the execution en plein air, the free expression of reality through quick touches and without preparatory drawing, with the contrast of warm colours, red and orange, and cold colours, green and blue, all to make the subject a bit melancholy. In 1985 the painting was stolen along with four other paintings by Monet, to be found in 1990 in Porto Vecchio, by a criminal who was negotiating its sale with a Japanese customer.
