Morning on the Seine near Giverny is an oil painting produced in 1897 by French painter Claude Monet
Fifteen canvases were shown in 1898; at the Galerie Georges Petit a year later after the painting was finished. Monet travelled several places far north to Norway and far south to Venice. He painted the river seine in Paris, Vetheuil and Argenteuil looking for different motifs but he loved those places only whom he knew completely. Many versions of the canvas were noted for their softness; color of pinkish mauve, greens and some blue for some rounded shapes.
Monet paintings viewpoint was suspended over the water which gives a feeling to viewer as if he is weightless and bodiless. Morning on the Seine series was painted over the course of two years from 1896 to 1897 while painting on a floating boat or making a studio on the land. Monet encounter bad weather conditions for several months which delayed the painting for almost two years. After the success of the series, Monet painted another series in 1900 namely Water Lilies series.
