Document Summary

At the sme time british love of nature also existed, houses built alone seine. P. 15: compared w/ corot"s view of geneva, monet"s is full of internal symmetries repeated horizontals and verticals, shapes that lie rather flatly on the surface. But corot had made use of alternate light + dark of his diagonal masory, powerful indicators of receding depth. Folige of trees -> not as flat as monet"s -> gaps between trunks diminish with distance. Corot: unaltered and unchanged landscapes, old cities, etc. verses monet"s interest in newly built things. Thus monet uses complicated network of geometric shapes -> generation"s wish to impose order and regular intervals over nature. Monet, bridge at bougival: author calls us to look at it w/ critical perspective of past not modern. His icture would have depicted serious suburban agitations -> composition has an abruptness, lack of traditionally integrated edges + spaces that speaks for the changing character of the capital.
