Painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) was a founder of French Impressionism, best known for his beautiful landscapes of the French countryside. The term Impressionism was adopted by Monet and a group of experimental artists when a dismissive art critic called their work just "an impression." Monet's brush captured the light and soft colors around him. Among his most beloved works are his paintings of water lilies and the bridge in his garden in Giverny, France.

The Short Biographies series features short, intriguing, and entertaining biographies of world-renowned figures. Each beautiful hardcover book includes an interesting retelling of a single person's life, suitable for young adults and adults alike. These little gems will become beloved souvenirs of a favorite artist or a memorable trip to the museum.

About the Artist, Claude Monet

Claude Monet (born November 14, 1840, Paris, France—died December 5, 1926, Giverny) was a French painter who was the initiator, leader, and unswerving advocate of the Impressionist style. In his mature works, Monet developed his method of producing repeated studies of the same motif in series, changing canvases with the light or as his interest shifted.

His popularity soared in the second half of the 20th century, when his works traveled the world in museum exhibitions that attracted record-breaking crowds.
