This panel of Claude Monet's painting The Morning (1920-26) features a subtly modulated blue palette for the span of water seen beyond the tree trunks and the hanging branches. Reflections of clouds glisten on the water in delicate tints of pink, white, and pale yellow. Color translates the morning's cool air and serene silence in the tranquil water garden from a sensuous to a visual experience.
