Monet La Plage et la Falaise d'Amont, (Beach and the Falaise d’Amont), 1894 depicts a beachside scene. The orange colored hues bring warmth to the scene. Floating just off the shore is a small boat. Boats of a similar size can be seen resting half out of the water with some pulled completely up onto the beach. The ocean looks relatively calm around the beach, with waves lapping gently at the sand. In the distance, the ocean becomes more powerful, with white sea foam spraying in every direction out by the Falaise d’Amont. This lithograph is beautifully completed in Monet’s impressionist style, with soft strokes filling the page.
