Where in the world?

In July 1890, Claude Monet began four almost identically scaled canvases showing poppy fields near his home in Giverny, France.
Although he did not consider these to be a series, like the 25 paintings of stacks of wheat that he began shortly after the harvest that same summer, the works certainly show his growing interest in developing several canvases at once. They also demonstrate a far more homogeneous touch than the freely brushed landscapes of his earlier career, with surfaces that have a tapestry-like materiality.
The painting illustrated a change in Monet’s technique, which occurred in the 1880s: he consciously treats the landscape as a vehicle for opposing bands of colors – red, green, and blue. He may have added to the painting in the studio in order to unify the surface.
The painting received widespread recognition at its United States premiere in 1886 and was one of Monet’s first works purchased by and American collector.
