During the winter of 1888, Monet visited Antibes in southern France. Under the Mediterranean sun his colors became lighter and brighter, and his paint surfaces more thickly impastoed. "What I bring back from here," he wrote, "will be sweetness itself, white, pink, and blue, all enveloped in a magical air." The brilliant colors -- warm pinks, corals, cool greens, and blues -- embody the sun-soaked atmosphere of the Mediterranean coast.
