Monet created this masterpiece in 1908, the year in which he visited Venice. The painting is also known as "Venice sunset", representing the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice at twilight; it is kept in the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff, UK. The beauty of the painting is given above all by the technique used by the painter. The realistic use of colours and the different shades used give the sunset a natural and concrete effect. Starting from the blue colour of the sky, the shades are becoming warmer, going from yellow to orange, until becoming red, almost symbolizing the fire of twilight and the warmth of light. The colours end up reflecting themselves in the lagoon too, creating a play of light and shadows and forming the reflection of the bell tower, showing us all the skills of Monet in the realistic representation of water. The buildings, appearing dark, stand out in the picture. The visual fulcrum is in fact placed on the left side of the work. The very intense representation of light, however, does not allow to focus the details and to outline the buildings represented. It is rumoured that when Monet painted the sunset, he had already started suffering from cataracts. Many argue that his impressionist impression derives from the fact that the disease made the vision of reality blurred and unclear. Monet used Venice as a subject several times in his paintings. He was very interested in the representation, at different times of the day, of the mutation of light and atmospheric conditions. He also often called Venice: "Too beautiful to be painted".
