In this painting, Monet weaves a complex composition of interconnected forms.
The foundation of the arrangement is four horizontal bands: the near shore,
the water, the far shore and the sky. A pattern of shapes and lines is then
overlaid to tie the different areas of the composition together. The dominant
link is the bridge which on the pictorial level spans the river to bind the
shores; on a compositional level, it spans the entire arrangement, connected
to and linking all four of the basic forms in the painting. The boats provide
an interesting latticework of lines with their masts and rigging. The central
mast joins the water, far shore and sky, while the echoing lower mast connects
visually all the way down to the unseen portion of the near shore. The
cropping of this mast at the bottom of the canvas, a favorite Impressionist
device, provides an especially dynamic link between the near shore (and by
extension the very feet of the viewer) and the sky. The composition of this
work is extremely pleasing to the eye, which is led effortlessly across the
canvas and back again, into depth and returned to the picture plane, in a
constant dynamic interplay of lines and forms.

This is an early work done a quarter-century before the famous Wheatstack
series of 1890-91. In those later works, Monet succeeded in expressing the
immutable essence of the Wheatstacks; here they are integrated into the overall
landscape. The relative sizes of the Haystacks as well as the inclination of
the low-lying clouds leads the eye forcefully toward the vanishing point of the
rising sun. This leftward-leaning composition is accentuated by the exaggerated
horizontality of the canvas. The muted colors and relatively finished
brushwork, along with the pyramidal shapes of the haystacks, convey a sense of
permanence that somewhat contradicts the depiction of something as transient as
a sunrise. This is an important early reference point illustrating the artistic
problems Monet worked to resolve as his style developed.
