From Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen:
The poppies in this painting are no more than small bright dabs of paint. Monet once wrote of his working method: "When you paint outdoors, attempt to forget the objects you see before you (...) Think only: here is a blue square, here a pink triangle, here a yellow stripe and paint exactly what is before your eyes."
