Exemplary Work - Claude Monet

Claude Monet

Claude Monet was the foremost of all French impressionist landscape painters. His mature style is marked by broken brushwork and pure, bright colors, which complemented his careful observation of the effects of sunlight.

Monet was largely responsible for the first group show of the Impressionists, held in Paris in 1874. Monet's painting Impression: Sunrise, 1872, gave a focal point to harsh ridicule by the reviewers who sarcastically gave its name to the Impressionist movement. For the next three years, the group of Impressionist painters including Renoir, Sisley, Monet and Degas, remained closely knit.
