In fact, the term "Impressionism" is derived from the title of one of his paintings, Impression: Sunrise. His renowned plein air, or outdoor, paintings capture natural landscapes with accents of sunlight and vibrant colors. To show the effects of changes in light, he often painted the same subject repeatedly, at different times of day and in different seasons. What are some examples? More...

I love the works of Monet and the other Impressionists. I would like one day to visit Giverny.

I always confuse Monet & Manet. Manet's work was mostly figurative; Monet's work was wild with colour, gardens featured heavily in his work. Monet painted numerous variations of water lilies.

The Rouen Cathedral Series -
The changing effects of the light






As lighting effects on nature's landscape are constantly changing, Monet would paint the same scene with a dozen or more canvases. In the morning mist of the River Seine, the haystacks at Giverny, the poplar trees at Epte, and the façade of Rouen Cathedral, Monet tried to capture the fleeting moment of colors and shades on his canvases from sunrise to sunset. He once reflected, "I wish I had been born blind and then suddenly gained my sight so that I could begin to paint without knowing what the objects were that I could see before me."

As a beginning art student I enjoyed Claude Monet work but soon realized that much of what he did was bordering on gushy segmental "slop". Though with it in 'perspective' with the majority of artists of his time he was miles ahead of them, with regards to exploration of his "media".
