Claude Monet

Claude Monet is one of the most important impressionist painters. It is even to one of his works Impression Soleil Levant that we owe the term impressionism.
Passionate about nature, gardening, light, he will be his lifelong attached to his property in Giverny, which he will shape as he pleases.
Understanding, through his dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, that the series of paintings help establish the style of the painter, he will embark on this challenge of renewing himself by treating the same subject about forty times! The Water Lilies, but also The Haystacks will be the perfect illustrations of this approach.
