Monet’s snowscape is almost deserted-the only figures in the scene quickly galloping into the distance. Even this fleeting departure plays a minor role in a canvas dominated by the variations of light, texture, shade, and surface. Monet’s reproduction of snow casts the surface not only as something seen but as something felt, something that covers and suggests what lies beneath. This idiosyncratic technique was forged through his profound studies of light reflections. These ‘effects of snow’ also led to the canvas Magpie dating from the winter of 1868-1869. The town of Honfleur wherein A Cart On The Snow Covered Road With Saint Simeon Farm was painted now attracts three million visitors a year, all of them wishing to experience-rather than merely see-the landscape which Monet so loved.
