This summer for me is the journey of art explore. I’m excited to attending Monet’s Secret Garden Summer Gala at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Impressionism has a very high artistic position, and Claude Monet is one of the great impressionist on Impressionism movement.

这个夏天对我而言是艺术探索之旅。我很高兴参加温哥华美术馆的6月份即将举办的莫奈秘密花园初夏盛典晚宴。印象派画系具有很高的艺术地位 ,克劳德·莫奈(Claude Monet)是印象派运动的最著名的伟大印象派画家之一。
Impressionism is a 19th-century art movement characterized by relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes, open composition, emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities (often accentuating the effects of the passage of time), ordinary subject matter, inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience, and unusual visual angles.

Monet was a founders of French Impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting.

谈到印象派,我们必须知道克劳德·莫奈。莫奈是法国印象派绘画的创始人,也是在从自然界中优先表达自己观念的这一个独特的艺术与运动中,最坚持和最多产的实践者,特别是他在户外山水风景画中的杰出表现。 The term "Impressionism" is derived from the title of his painting Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which was exhibited in 1874 in the first of the independent exhibitions mounted by Monet and his associates as an alternative to the Salon de Paris.

其实,“印象派”一词源自莫奈的作品“印象,日出”。该作品是莫奈和他的同事们在巴黎沙龙举办的第一次独立展览中首次展出。 Taking about Monet, we must talk about his house and garden in Giverny in France that sits on the "right bank" of the River Seine where the river Epte meets the Seine. The village lies 80 km (50 mi) from Paris.

关于莫奈,我们必须要知道他在法国吉维尼的房子和花园,这个坐落在塞浦纳河畔的“右岸”,位于埃普河与塞纳河相遇之交的一个小村庄。 距离巴黎80公里(50英里)。
Claude Monet noticed the village of Giverny while looking out of a train window. He made up his mind to move there and rented a house and the area surrounding it. In 1890 he had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the

water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.

这个吉维尼小村庄是莫奈看着火车窗外风景时发现的。 他很快便爱上了那个美丽的小村庄,在那里租了房子和周边花园开始作画。 在1890年,他有足够的钱买下了房子和土地,开始创造他想象中的宏伟花园,并开始疯狂作画。 他最着名的画作中有很多是描绘吉维尼花园的:例如,花园里的典型长方形“ Clos normand”,这个攀岩植物与彩色灌木交织在一起的莫奈花园基地,还有一个由Epte河流的支流流经而成的水花园,日本桥,池塘 与睡莲,紫藤和杜鹃花,所有这些美丽的精致都映衬在莫奈的作品中。
Monet's ambition of documenting the French countryside led him to adopt a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons.

莫奈记录法国农村美丽风景的野心,让他醉心创造出一种独特的画风,那就是反复画同一处场景,但却捕捉光线的不同变化,和四季的变迁,来惟妙惟肖地描绘不同时节下的极致美景。 Monet love his garden where he began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works. In 1899 he began painting the water lilies, first in vertical views with a Japanese bridge as a central feature, and later in the series of large-scale paintings that was to occupy him continuously for the next 20 years of his life.
