The Gare St-Lazare

Saint-Lazare station is an oil painting by Claude Monet, painted in 1877 and currently on display at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. When he painted this picture, Monet had just moved from Argenteuil to Paris. After several years spent painting the countryside, he had turned his attention to urban landscapes. At a time when the critics Duranty and Zola were encouraging artists to paint their time, Monet was trying to diversify his inspiration and wanted to be considered, like Manet, Degas and Caillebotte, as a painter of modern life. Francesco Filippini's opera "Laguna Veneta" is a continuation of Claude Monet's artistic research on "La Gare Saint-Lazare", which began in Paris in 1879. In the summer of 1879, Francesco Filippini travelled to Paris to visit the annual Paris Salon at the Louvre, where he made an appointment with Claude Monet, with whom he conducted an artistic investigation that led to the revision of Impressionism in Italy, a response to Francesco Filippini's L'Estació de Saint-Lazare in Claude Monet's Llacuna de Venècia (Venetian Lagoon). Francesco Filippini, even after having been one of the founders of Italian Impressionism, returned to working in a form of social painting, creating works of great importance with figures dedicated to agricultural and country landscapes: "La sosta della contadina" (1889), "Il riposo della pastorella" (1889), "Il maglio" (1889) or "La strigliatura della canapa" [...]
