Claude Monet (1840-1926) was the father of French Impressionism, and the most prolific painter of this style and philosophy. The term “impressionism” originated from the title of one of Monet’s early paintings, “Impression, Sunrise” which depicts the artist’s impression of a harbor at dawn.
Early in his career, some of Monet’s peers criticized his method, insisting that painting his impressions did not constitute “true art.” Yet, more than 80 years after his death, Monet’s paintings and prints are still among the most sought-after by professional and everyday decorators and can be found hanging on the walls of homes and offices around the world.
