Inventory No. , I, 204. n 1899 the Moscow collector Sergei Shchukin bought Monet’s painting Lilacs in the Sun from Paul Durand- artist’s later work, is already in evidence here. Monet makes very little use of glazing, employing mostly one layer of Ruel in Paris. It was the first Monet to find its way opaque paint. The picture is basically a study of light and to Russia.

It is a unique painting, for it preserves the general conception of one of Monet’s most important early projects. In his article “Letters from the World Fair” of 1900, Alexander Benois wrote from Paris about this picture: “We cannot even dream of St. ” 53. 39. LADY IN THE GARDEN (SAINTE-ADRESSE) 1867. Oil on canvas. 80 x 99 cm. Signed, bottom left: Claude Monet. The Hermitage, St. Petersburg. Inventory No. 6506. , I, 68. he precise dating of this painting to 1867 is based on depicted was a corner of the Lecadres’ garden and the model the style of the lady’s dress, which fully conforms to the fashions of that year, and on Durand-Ruel’s label was Jeanne-Marguerite Lecadre, the daughter of Alphonse Lecadre, an eminent physician from Le Havre.

A version of this painting, probably of an earlier date (until 1972 in the collection of M. Field in New York, at present in the William Rockhill Nelson Gallery and Atkins Museum of Fine Arts, Kansas City), has a vertical format and more movement in depth as the diagonal of the boulevard is given more prominence than in the present picture where, as already discussed, there is movement in all directions, but development in depth is somewhat restricted. In this painting Monet went contrary to the traditional principles of space construction in landscapes, establishing his novel approach whereby movement in depth is gradually arrested (to become a characteristic feature of Monet’s later work, particularly of his Rouen Cathedral series).
