About this product
- DescriptionClaude Monet's painting Impression, Sunrise, first exhibited in 1874, established him as the leader of the Impressionist movement in France. The invative style of Monet and the other Impressionist painters (including Pierre-Auguste Reir, Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Paul Cezanne, and Camille Pissarro) broke from past traditions of figurative painting. Impressionists used short brushstrokes and juxtaposed color and light in new ways that captured fleeting moments, or impressions, of a scene. Impressions of Monet introduces young readers to the everyday details of the painter's life and family, and follows his artistic development to the culmination of his career, the water-lily series he painted during his final years at Giverny. Monet t only created great beauty, he laid the foundations of modern art.
