Claude Monet

A painting from the early years of C20, painte in Venice.

Claude Monet also known as Oscar-Claude Monet or Claude Oscar Monet (14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) 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.The term Impressionism is derived from the title of his painting Impression, Sunrise.

    I remember seeing this in an exhibition alongside similar paintings by Whistler and Turner - there's a similar one on at the moment for Sickert too. Here's my minor footnote:

    Nocturne in Blue

    Thanks Richard..quick on the draw as ever! Still rather a lot to put up on Flickr, the colour on this one really is that vivid!

    Yes a very hot Monet, great depht with vivid colour, I can't believe it to be an actual transcript of light rather his inner eye excited about paint and the possibilities of harmony.
