Famous Artist Claude Monet's Biography And Paintings

View Famous Artist Claude Monet Paintings

Famous Artists Claude Monet (1840 – 1952) was born in Paris, but grew up in Le Havre. His first artistic output were caricatures when he was a little boy. He went on to pioneer Impressionism, profoundly influencing landscape painting. Making a break from established painting techniques, Claude Monet captured the fleeting effects of time of day, atmosphere and season upon color and light. Like a prism, his artwork broke color into individual elements, and completely lacked black and gray tones. He often painted the exact same view numerous times to depict changing light and weather conditions. Refining the portrayal of natural light’s transient effects, his work broke ground for 20th century modernism. In his late years Claude Monet suffered from physical problems. After 1907 a bad eyesight and rheumatism made it more and more impossible for him to paint. But he continued until the year of his death.
