About this product
- DescriptionInspiring Artists tells us what it is that makes some famous artists so important and memorable, t only in terms of their artistic legacy, but also as to their impact on the wider world. It explores their life and times through significant pieces of their art, looking at the work in terms of its context, from conflict (Goya), to festivities (Bruegel) to personal struggle (Van Gogh). Each work is also considered in terms of its style, technique and artistic invation. Claude Monet (1840-1926) was one of the founders of Impressionism and a hugely successful artist in his own right. His bright, dappled paintings, which captured subjects as varied as seascapes, railways and his famous waterlilies, created a turning point in art and gave colour a new importance. Monet's invations paved the way for artists as diverse as Wassily Kandinsky, Roy Lichtenstein and Joan Mitchell.
