Painted in 1868 by Claude Monet in a winter field at Étretat, Normandy, 'The Magpie' is one of the most iconic snowscapes of all the similar works painted by impressionist maestros of the late 19th century. The Magpie was painted towards the end of a period of tremendous personal turmoil for Monet, sentiments that resonate in every brushstroke of the artwork. The image of a lone magpie perched on a closed gate, taking in the desolation of a long, cold winter contrasts powerfully with the warm tones of the beams of a rising spring sun - a perfect window into the emotional tumult that Monet probably endured and the promise of a better future that lay ahead. It makes one wonder whether the true subject of the painting really is the magpie or rather Monet himself.
