Who was Claude Monet?
Claude Monet is a 20th-century painter who is the founder of `impressionism, who helped pioneer the painterly effects and emphasis on light, atmosphere, and Plein air technique that became hallmarks of Impressionism. The term “Impressionism” is derived from the title of his painting Impression, `rising sun` exhibited in 1874 in the first Salon.
He is especially known for his series of haystacks and cathedrals at different times of day, and for his late Waterlilies (which is also one of the most famous and expensive works of Monet).
