Between 1858 and 1882 Monet painted 49 still lifes and 21of them were of flowers In his Chrysanthemums the subject combined his interest in gardening and painting A relation that was displayed even more after he moved to Giverny in 1883 Like his Bouquet of Sunflowers of 1881 this still life was probably painted when bad weather had driven the artist indoors This still life display colors rhythm surface and touch to the fullest extent In Van Goughs Oleanders he believed that these flowers were joyous and that they bloomed riotously were continually renewing themselves In the painting the flowers are placed in a jug which is symbolically adjacent to a book titled La Joie de Vivre by Emile Zols The flowers seem to be leaning towards the book like how they would lean towards sunlightAlthough they are opposites being Monet more classic and Van Gough I like to call him stylish they both did their painting beautifully the way the subject is brought to life with color But what I truly loved was their totally different style and painting techniques Monets style of painting where the subject appears to be blurry and being able to notice his delicate brush strokes in the petals of the flowers along with his choice of colors give the painting a classic feel to it You can see somewhat of a reflection of the vase and flowers on the table again Monet uses his blurry technique The light blue background gives it a calming peaceful effect
