Since the beginning of the 1980s, Winfred Gaul has been intensively occupied with Claude Monet, which is reflected in works on Giverny as well as several homages to the French artist - such as in the "Visit to Giverny" from 1982 or "Winter Morning in Giverny" from 1983 - or in some fictional localizations: "C. Monet in Cuzco" (1982), "... in Morocco" (1983), "... on Kilimanjaro" (1983), "... in Manhattan" (1983), all of which are triptychs in addition to a four-part painting. Gaul described the two-part painting "C. M. on Stromboli" from 1988 as "painting in 2 phases." At first glance, the works have little to do with the Impressionist painter, but he takes up where Monet left off: "Just as there is no predominant formal scheme in my painting, so there is no 'typical' color tone that always recurs. Everything is possible and everything is played out: Primary colors, secondary colors and their combination, earth colors, mixed tones of white, black and chromatic colors." Whether it's the Monet experience or the myth of Giverny, Gaul's multiple homages convey a great empathy that carries over to his own journeys, like the one to the Lipari island of Stromboli off Sicily.
