Claude Monet: A Brush with Nature's Symphony

Claude Monet (1840–1926) was a pioneering French painter and a key figure in the Impressionist movement. Renowned for his mastery of light and color, Monet’s work captured the transient effects of nature with innovative techniques that emphasized loose brushwork and vibrant palettes. His series paintings, such as “Water Lilies,” “Haystacks,” and “Rouen Cathedral,” explore the same subjects under varying conditions of light and atmosphere, highlighting his fascination with perception and the passage of time. Monet’s garden in Giverny became a central inspiration for his later works, and his contributions significantly shaped the course of modern art, making him one of the most influential artists of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
