Claude Monet resumed painting the stacks of grain in late August 1890. Day after day he revisited the same field and the same subject, differentiated now solely by the natural course of light and the subtle variations achieved by the placement of his easel, the pigment on his palette, and the touch of his brush. The challenge of this series occupied Monet for six subsequent months.

Grainstacks in Bright Sun features dramatic colors to capture the natural perception of the light. Learn more about Claude Monet's Grainstacks in Bright Sun in the next section.
