This site is dedicated to talking about art and artists. One of my favorite aritsts is Claude Monet born 14 November 1840 – died 5 December 1926.
Monet was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement’s philosophy of expressing one’s perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting. The term Impressionism is derived from the title of his painting Impression, Sunrise. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
I had the pleasure of visiting his home in France years ago it left quite an impression on me! (Pun intended)
