Monet was not only interested in light on objects, he was interested in the light between objects - the atmosphere. Monet also was interested in an underlying rectilinear structure, or skeleton; his Rouen Cathedral and Poplar series are examples of this. Monet , more than any other Impressionist, remained true to its character, in one way or another, to the end of his career.
