The picture "Claude Monet in his studio boat" was written by Edward Manet in 1874. At that time, he made a summer trip to Argenteuil in the company of Claude Monet. There they were engaged in painting together, and Manet portrays the great master at work in his boat. Although Manet worked in the era of the Impressionists and liked communication with them (he was especially interested in their work with lighting), he never ranked himself in their group. He wanted to become an officially recognized and well-paid artist, entering the Salon from the main entrance, and not exhibiting himself in some wretched shack.
The style of Eduard Manet differs from the style of the Impressionists, as can be seen in this picture. Impressionists rejected the black color, Manet, on the contrary, always uses it. Long and smooth neat strokes are applied to the canvas (rather than short strokes or impressionist points at all). It can be seen that the colors on the canvas are mixed, the shades are different (the impressionists in very rare cases mixed paints).
It is impossible to say what genre this picture is. Careful attention is paid to both portraits and landscape. The centerpiece of the composition is Claude Monet, working on a portrait of a lady. He works afloat in his studio boat, but his work, despite the pitching on the waves, is accurate and beautiful. A sketch is visible on his easel, his brush strokes are dense. Monet is depicted dressed in a light shirt and pants, he is thoughtful and focused on work. The lady model is beautiful, she is also wearing light clothes and she is looking forward to the end of the work, she wants to look at the result.
Mane draws the landscape surrounding the characters very clearly. Waves and glare on the water, sky and clouds floating on the horizon of a yacht with smoking chimneys, a wooden house on the shore. All this successfully frames the artist and the lady sitting in the studio boat.
