I grant that Les Peupliers à Giverny isn’t a showstopper. Yet it’s a fascinating link between Monet’s Impressionism and his post-Impressionism, a glowing orange, violet, pink, and purple depiction of trees with the powdery presence of eye makeup, exuding the unstable flux of every moment. Brushstrokes flicker, sky and ground flip-flop, atmosphere and nature merge; the horizon line and logical perspective dissolves as the whole little picture becomes unmoored, seems to double and reflect itself in centerless space. Worth holding onto, you’d think.
