Monet La Côte Sauvage (The Wild Coast), 1894 displays the dark and wild scenery of the coast. From where Monet paints, he sees down a long line of rocks receding further into the grasp of the ocean. The rocks themselves are dark and look rough to the touch. The water moves around them, sometimes crashing into the rocks violently evidenced by the ocean spray that leaps around the base of the rock. The horizon is mostly clear, but ghosts of clouds hint at that it may not last. Monet displays his extraordinary talent at making landscapes truly come to life in La Côte Sauvage.
