The Magpie is an impressionistic winter landscape painting by Claude Monet. It was painted in the winter of 1868-1869 near Etretat, Normandy. Monet would eventually paint 140 winter landscapes. The Magpie is his largest winter work at 35 inches by 51 inches in size. The extremely innovative painting was initially rejected from The Salon, the annual official art exhibition of the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, as being too "coarse". Nonetheless, it was eventually acquired by the Musee d'Orsay on the Left Bank and quickly became one of its most popular paintings.
A pale, snowy landscape in bright afternoon sun with stark shadows stretches across the canvas. The foreground is entirely snow and shadows. In the mid-ground is a wattle fence with a thick layer of snow. On the far left, a magpie perches on a style that stretches over the fence. In the background is a long, pale tan brick building partly obscured by winter trees. Like many Impressionistic paintings, when viewed from a distance it has an almost photo-realistic quality. Up close the brush strokes and overall design is very soft.
