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.

    About the Artist

    Claude Monet

    Claude Monet (1840 — 1926) 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.
