Claude Monet, the Grandfather of Impressionism

Considered by many as the Grandfather of impressionism, was born in France in 1840. He is well known for beginning the French impressionist movement and documenting the french countryside, often the same scene more than once. He wanted to capture the ever-changing light and passing of seasons. Learn about his life as an artist and the great history that surrounds him.

Giverny, A Work of Art, His Home, and His Inspiration

He once claimed that he was a man who is interested in nothing but his painting and gardening. So to inspire himself, he built his gardens in Giverny, a village on the River Seine some 80 km west of Paris, where he lived for 43 years until he passed away. His beautiful gardens were a sanctuary for the aging Monet and his family, especially during his later years when the outside world is wrapped in war and political turmoil. His house and garden is also a work of art, and Monet put all his life into creating and perfecting it. Monet says,

“I am chasing a dream, I want the unattainable. Other artists paint a bridge, a house, a boat; and that’s the end. They’ve finished. I want to paint the air which surrounds the bridge, the house, the boat; the beauty of the air in which these objects are located; and that is nothing short of impossible. If only I could satisfy myself with what is possible.”

Interesting Monet biography

Josephine presented details we had not heard of Monet's life. She also presented art that aren't the usual go-tos. Josephine was very engaging--I would attend another virtual tour of hers.
