  • Charing Cross Bridge - Claude Monet | Museo Thyssen
    the Thames produced by Monet between 1899 and 1901 from the Savoy Hotel overlooking the gardens of the Victoria Embankment Though varying in subject matter these paintings share a common aim to capture the light filtering through the winter fog Of the thirty seven views comprising the series only twelve were finished on site most being completed in Monet s studio at Giverny where he showed less interest in topographical accuracy than in the treatment of light as a whole More information about this work Listen Monet s series of paintings of views of the River Thames was concentrated in the years between 1899 and 1904 On three occasions Monet returned to the Savoy Hotel and from his high vantage point there executed views of both Waterloo and Charing Cross Bridges His friend the art critic Gustave Geffroy recalled visiting Monet with Clemenceau in 1900 Several times we saw him set up on the balcony of his room overlooking the Thames Charing Cross Bridge on his right Waterloo Bridge on his left In front of us the Thames rolled its waves almost invisible in the fog A boat passed like a ghost The bridges were barely discernible in that space and on them an all but imperceptible movement gave life to the mist s opacity trains passing each other on Charing Cross Bridge buses streaming across Waterloo Bridge wafts of smoke that soon disappeared into the thick and livid vastness It was an awe inspiring solemn and gloomy spectacle One could almost believe that everything was about to vanish disappear into that colourless obscurity In the present painting the fog covered Thames is seen on a late winter s afternoon barges slowly move upstream with the hazy silhouette of the Houses of Parliament barely visible in the fading light of the setting sun Monet confessed to the art dealer and diarist René Gimpel entry of 28 November 1918 that he only loved London in the winter with the fog Yes because I love London much more than the English countryside yes I adore London It is a mass and ensemble and it is so simple And then what I love most of all about London is the fog During the three winters that Monet worked in London 1899 to 1901 he is said to have completed only twelve views of the Thames on the spot Once back in Giverny he worked on at least eight more canvases And it was not until 1904 that he eventually exhibited his London views 37 of them at the gallery of Durand Ruel in Paris Virtually all Monet s paintings in the series were worked upon in the studio and he became less interested in topographical accuracy and more prone to emphasise atmospheric conditions For example he eliminated Cleopatra s Needle from the view of Charing Cross Bridge At the 1904 exhibition the critic Georges Lecomte claimed that Monet had never attained such a vaporous subtlety such power of abstraction and synthesis Gustave Kahn

  • Untitled (Green on Maroon) - Mark Rothko | Museo Thyssen
    developed a personal abstract language which he continued to refine and simplify throughout the following twenty years His canvases which are generally large as he believed they would inspire greater intimacy when viewed are divided into several rectangular more or less horizontal open and vibrant fields of colour which bear no relationship to geometry and appear to float in an indeterminate space The paint applied in a series of thin layers as if it were watercolour instead of oil never reveals the brushstrokes and texture is reduced to its minimum expression Rothko conceived his works as dramas as the performance of a timeless tragedy His paintings infused with great spiritual intensity engage the viewer with great emotional force inspiring contemplation and meditation Robert Rosenblum described Rothko s painting as abstraction of the sublime and related it to the Romantic tradition of the northern European countries According to this author Rothko s paintings like those of Friedrich a century before him look for the sublime in a profane world Rothko considered pure colour to be the best means of expressing emotions and in this respect he can be linked to Kandinsky s mystic theories of abstraction Like Kandinsky Rothko believed that colour acted directly on the human soul and was capable of eliciting deep emotions in the viewer During the early 1960s the bright powerful tones of his earlier paintings which have a sort of expansive radiating effect were replaced by dull shades of maroon grey dark green and brown resulting in more hermetic and even more awe inspiring works In 1961 the same year Rothko painted the Green on Maroon belonging to the Museo Thyssen Bornemisza The Museum of Modern Art held a major exhibition of his works the first one man show it devoted to an artist of the
