Hello Fellow art lovers!

Claude Monet

 

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.[1][2] 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)

    This is very interesting! I had not known that the term “Impressionist” came from his painting. I’m a musician who likes to paint, and I love to stare at his paintings. They look like Claude Debussy’s music sounds.
