Auctioning a fine museum, oil painting of sunset at Houses of parliament in Westminster. The painting falls to the early Impressionist era where we can appreciate the small strokes of oils used to capture the effects of light of the outdoor scenery. The painting appears as a study for one of Claude Monets larger paintings. Monet's evocative landscapes with their lush and subtle colors, thrilling use of light from various times of the day and seasons, and varied locations of vantage include subjects as the fields in the countryside, rivers with towering poplars, vertiginous cliffs or.In his paintings Monet loved to paint the same location during the different seasons of the year and various times of the day to experiment how light shown across the sky and other objects within his paintings. His sunset paintings are most noted for their bold use of reds, yellows, oranges, blues and purples that make up his complex and lively sky scenery. Claude Monet captured these in luminous paint and in doing so, he conveyed the vitality of nature itself. The in the present painting, the sunset is expressed through a vivid interplay of color, from the deepest violet-red to the shining yellow-gold illuminating the surface of the water.

The painting has a reference number marked on verso, which in our opinion belong to the previous collections this artwork was part of. Is art movement characterized by relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes, open composition, emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities (often accentuating the effects of the passage of time), ordinary subject matter, inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience, and unusual visual angles. Impressionism can be considered the first distinctly modern movement in painting. Developing in Paris in the 1860s, its influence spread throughout Europe and eventually the United States.Its originators were artists who rejected the official, government-sanctioned exhibitions, or salons, and were consequently shunned by powerful academic art institutions. In turning away from the fine finish and detail to which most artists of their day aspired, the Impressionists aimed to capture the momentary, sensory effect of a scene - the impression objects made on the eye in a fleeting instant. To achieve this effect, many Impressionist artists moved from the studio to the streets and countryside, painting en plein air.
The Impressionists loosened their brushwork and lightened their palettes to include pure, intense colors. They abandoned traditional linear perspective and avoided the clarity of form that had previously served to distinguish the more important elements of a picture from the lesser ones.For this reason, many critics faulted Impressionist paintings for their unfinished appearance.
