Who is Oscar Claude Monet?

Oscar-Claude Monet is an acclaimed French painter and one of the founders of the Impressionist movement alongside his companions Renoir, Sisley, and Bazille.

Impression, Sunrise by Claude Monet

Impression, Sunrise by Claude Monet

This work was painted from a lodging window at Le Havre in 1873 (Monet later dated it mistakenly to 1872). It was one of the nine works that appeared at the First Impressionist Exhibition of 1874.

On 25 April, ten days after the exhibition had opened, an article showed up in the humorous diary Le Charivari in which an art pundit Louis Leroy portrayed an imaginary discussion between two guests. One of them shouted: 

"Impression I was certain of it. I was just telling myself that, since I was impressed, there had to be some impression in it — and what freedom, what ease of workmanship! A preliminary drawing for a wallpaper pattern is more finished than this seascape."

The article was entitled 'The Exhibition of the Impressionists', and the label stuck from thereon.

In spite of its reputation, Sunrise shows little of the Impressionist style of light and dark shadings. The colors are limited and the paint is not applied in tiny brushstrokes of an impressionist style painting.

Woman with a Parasol - Madame Monet and Her Son by Claude Monet

Woman with a Parasol - Madame Monet and Her Son by Claude Monet

Monet painted Woman with a Parasol, Madame Monet and Her Son, while in Argenteuil, France, in 1875.

In 1871 Monet moved from England to the Netherlands, and then to Argenteuil, France where he would live for some time. Argenteuil is only a fifteen-minute train ride from Paris, making it a perfect escape for Parisians.

For impressionist painters, Argenteuil was a town brimming with nature. Argenteuil was a place for families to take strolls. And Impressionists praised the average workers, families, and landscapes.

In the composition is lady Camille. She stands on the highest point of the hill with the beautiful blue sky as the background. She is wearing a white dress and short coat. Her cloth is blowing in the wind and she then turns to look at her observer.

Monet was a painter who tried different colors with various light tones and shadings and this can clearly be found in the shading of the lady Camille's garments.

Further down the slope, we see a young kid Monte's son looking towards the observer.

Women in the Garden by Claude Monet

Women in the Garden by Claude Monet

Claude Monet made Women in the Garden (Femmes au Jardin) in 1866 and it is commonly viewed as his first attempt to catch the interplay of light and nature.

He utilized an enormous canvas, generally used for chronicling time periods. He created an intimate scene of three women in white dresses and one man standing near the shade of a tree within a garden way. 

In the frontal area, a lady in a white dress holds a pale umbrella over her head and her lap is brimming with flowers. Behind her, a lady and a man stand together. The lady is wearing a white dress with green stripes. The man wears a long tan coat. His face is partially covered by a blend of roses. On the right side of the work, another woman in a white dress seems she is about to pick up some flowers from the garden.

Camille Doncieux was the model for each of the three female figures in the painting. Doncieux was Monet's model, fancy woman, and later his wife.

While this painting might not be viewed among his finest works, it established him as a prominent Impressionist artist.

Westminster Bridge (aka The Thames below Westminster) by Claude Monet

During the Franco-Prussian War in July 1870, Monet fled with his family to London. He remained in London until May 1871, he then proceeded to the Netherlands before finally returning to France. Monet painted just a few paintings of the Thames, Green Park, and Hyde Park. When he lived in London.

This is one of his best works, showcasing the Houses of Parliament covered in a foggy haze. He later came to like the city (London), returning a few times, and he told the famous seller Rene Gimpel:

"I just love London in winter without its mist".

This work was shown in 1873 in London by an art vendor Paul Durand-Ruel, whom Monet initially met on his journey to London.

Durand-Ruel gave Monet a significant commission for his works.

Rue Montorgueil by Claude Monet

 Rue Montorgueil by Claude Monet

The Rue Montorgueil is frequently thought to delineate a July 14 festivity. Although it was painted on June 30, 1878, for a festival that proclaimed to celebrate the "peace and work".

The composition layout of the painting suggests that Monet painted this from a rooftop or maybe looking out of a window of a tall building. The three colors vibrating in Monet's painting are those of France's flag.
