Monet's subject matter was mainly centered upon landscapes, and mainly cultivated landscapes (parks, country homes) as opposed to wild ones (meadows or forests). Monet also utilized unusual palettes that were not commonly seen before he made them popular: pastels and muted colors that were based upon the lighting seen at very particular times of day. This painting of the impression of light is seen dramatically in his many versions of the facade of the cathedral at Rouen, portrayed in many different palettes corresponding to time of day and weather conditions.
