The 1880 painting presents a view of a sun-drenched field of poppies, through which a small path winds its way to the village shown in the middle line of the painting. Although the landscape seems uniform, Claude Monet
painted it from an island on the river Seine. Upon careful examination, it is possible to see the reflections of the water in the shadows of the poplars. In addition to the comprehensive title A journey through a flowering field near Ile Saint-Martin in Vétheuil, Claude Monet
also dedicated a shorter one to the painting - View of Vétheuil. A number of other landscapes
from the sunny summer of 1880 also come from the surroundings of the picturesque village where the famous impressionist bought a house in 1878.

A native Parisian, who thoroughly developed the idea of Impressionism
. Monet almost scientifically studied the effect of light on different objects. He devoted himself to so called transitory states, which quickly led him to work with colour and light, his paintings acting on the viewer from the first impression. His use of open-air painting and objects which were special only because of light opened the way for the beginnings of modern painting. Monet’s Impression, Sunrise
(1874) not only gave the name to the whole art movement, but secured Monet a place among the best painters of all times. At one time, he resided in London and created his famous study Houses of Parliament
(Monet wondered, How could the English painters paint Parliament when it cannot be seen for the fog?). In the Giverny
, which became his favourite retreat after the death of his wife, he painted motifs from his garden and the popular series Water Lilies
- the world of the water was as poetic and mysterious as a primordial paradise.
