Claude Monet

Monet, Impression, Sunrise (Impression, soleil levant), 1872, Musée Marmottan, Paris


Monet was the founder of Impressionism, named after his painting pictured above, and was a bridge to Modernism, a new form of art that reflected the industrial world. His paintings are expressions of the living moment as he saw it. He gave us the same scenes many times to capture the effect of the changing light. This lecture will look at varied examples from his long career as an artist.
