Monet believed in the truthness seen by the human eye, as light deformed shapes and colours – so the cathedral does not really have one colour, it assumes the colours of the days, the weather and the seasons.

It is Monet’s obsession with the study of light that led him to paint the same subject multiple times. In this case, one of the paintings created of the cathedral of Rouen, which was captured at different times of the day, over a long period of time (between 1892 and 1894), resulting in more than thirty works, and serving as a visual record of accumulated perceptions of light throughout time.

Monet adds a temporal dimension to light: where light is no longer the significance of a single moment, but the discovery of the mysteries accumulated over time.
