The painting Gladioli by Claude Monet is temporarily on display in the Italian wing of the Detroit Institute of Art Due to the renovations being made to the newer sections of the museum only the old main area of the museum is open to the public during the construction so Gladioli had to be moved in order to be put on display Located on the right side of the main entrance the Italian wing is a one large room Every available space on the walls is filled with paintings and the center of the room is filled with sculptures Tucked back in the far right corner of this room is our masterpiece a spotlight from the high ceiling lights the work At first glance the painting is unassuming and appears to be rather dull in its content and subject matter Upon further review one can begin to see the tremendous amount of skill and effort the artist has put into this piece Up close the painting looks like a series of dots and random brush strokes if one steps ten feet back the painting comes alive Painted circa 1876 by Claude Monet Gladioli is an oil on canvas and it is currently covered with protective glass The paintings dimensions are 22 x 325 inches and is surrounded by a ten inch thick ornate gold frame making the entire work measure a substantial 30 x 20 x 3 78 inches The painting depicts a women in blue strolling along a path in a formal garden shaded by a green parasol Pink red and purple gladiolas in full bloom are in the right foreground They are bordered by a low growing coral colored flowers and small shrubs line the path White moths fly amongst the flowers and the angular dark shadow of a nearby building that is just outside of the painting lies in the left foreground Behind the women in blue there are red roses growing
