Claude Monet

(b Paris, 14 Nov 1840; d Giverny, 6 Dec 1926).

French painter. He was the leader of the Impressionist movement in France; indeed the movement’s name, IMPRESSIONISM, is derived from his Impression, Sunrise (1873; Paris, Mus. Marmottan). Throughout his long career, and especially in his series from the 1890s onwards, he explored the constantly changing quality of light and colour in different atmospheric conditions and at various times of the day.
