Modern Impressionist Artists:
Claude Monet was a key figure in the Impressionist movement that transformed French painting in the second half of the nineteenth century. Throughout his long career, Monet consistently depicted the landscape and leisure activities of Paris and its environs as well as the Normandy coast. He led the way to twentieth-century modernism by developing a unique style that strove to capture on canvas the very act of perceiving nature. Below are some Claude Monet famous paintings.

Woman with a Parasol, 1875 by Claude Monet
Woman with a Parasol was painted outdoors, probably in a single session of several hours' duration. The artist intended the work to convey the feeling of a casual family outing rather than a formal portrait and used pose and placement to suggest that his wife and son interrupted their stroll while he captured their likenesses.
The Cliff Walk at Pourville, 1882 by Claude Monet
Monet completed Walk on the Cliff at Pourville in 1882 where he visited in Normandy in order to find some escape from personal and professional pressures. It is thought that the two young women depicted are Marthe and Blanche, two of Alice's daughters, while other commentators suggest the woman is Alice herself accompanied by one of her children. In this work, Monet addressed the problem of inserting figures into a landscape without disrupting the unity of its painterly surface. He integrated these elements with one another through texture and color.
Regatta at Sainte-Adresse, 1867 by Claude Monet
The painting is consistent with the seascapes Monet produced during the summer and fall of 1867. There is a new awareness of the particular atmospheric character of the scene, reflecting Monet's growing acuity as a landscape painter. The overcast day is skillfully captured through the grayish tonalities of the sky, the water, and the beach. A stronger emphasis is also given to the paint surface, with rapidly applied touches of color that help characterize rather than carefully delineate the scene. The relative simplicity of the composition, the elimination of detail, and the fresh, varied quality of the brushwork all suggest that this painting may have been executed at least in part on site rather than entirely in the studio.

The Artist's Garden at Giverny by Claude Monet
In Monet’s The Artist’s Garden at Giverny, painted in 1900, we see rows of color. On the bottom half, Monet paints, with characteristic thick brushstrokes, rows of irises glistening in varying shades of violet. Where the trees above block the sunlight, the flowers are dark with highlights of white. In the middle, the sun pierces through the trees filling the space with light purple, pink, lilac, and white. Monet has shown the brightness of the day, the sun bouncing off the delicate flowers.
Camille Monet In Japanese Costume by Claude Monet
This painting depicts Camille Monet, the painter's wife, wrapped in a kimono and surrounded by fans. She wears a blond wig. The canvas was exhibited in 1876 at the second group exhibition of the Impressionists.
Edgar Degas seems never to have reconciled himself to the label of “Impressionist,” preferring to call himself a “Realist” or “Independent.” Nevertheless, he was one of the group’s founders, an organizer of its exhibitions, and one of its most important core members. Like the Impressionists, he sought to capture fleeting moments in the flow of modern life, yet he showed little interest in painting plein-air landscapes, favoring scenes in theaters and cafés illuminated by artificial light, which he used to clarify the contours of his figures, adhering to his academic training.

The Blue Dancers,1899 by Edgar Degas
Degas’ The Blue Dancers, painted in 1899 and currently housed at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Art, Moscow, is the culmination of the artist’s life-long study of movement and dancers. Once humbly trying to explain his fervent interest in the rehearsals, performances, and training of ballerinas, Degas said: “People call me the painter of dancing girls. It has never occurred to them that my chief interest in dancers lies in rendering movement and painting pretty clothes.” The Blue Dancers was drawn with pastels in the last twenty years of his career when he was working from a large Montmartre studio.
A Cotton Office in New Orleans, 1873 by Edgar Degas
The Cotton Office in New Orleans is an 1873 oil painting by Edgar Degas. In it, Degas depicts the moment when his uncle Michel Musson's cotton brokerage business went bankrupt in an economic crash, according to Michael McMahon of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

After the Bath, Woman drying herself Depiction by Edgar Degas
Degas was extremely interested in portraying the female form in different capacities. Degas' earliest paintings focusing on women bathing appeared in the 1880s, and he continued to paint bathers for several decades. After the Bath, Woman Drying Herself is one of a series of works Degas produced which focus on women bathing. He also created charcoal drawings and a brown wax sculpture of this composition. Degas wanted his portraits of bathers to appear as though the artist and or/viewer are secretly observing the subject. He wanted to capture movement and the natural appearance of the body and to create an intimate scene.
Paul Cezanne was a post-impressionist painter who created the bridge between impressionism and cubism and is said to be the artistic father of both Matisse and Picasso. Although he was dissuaded by his father at an early age to pursue his passions in painting, he left his hometown of Provence for Paris, in 1861. It was there that he met Camille Pisarro, a popular impressionist painter, who served as his mentor and guide. He began painting in the impressionistic style but later began to structurally order what he saw and painted into simple forms and planes of color. He also began to simplify the forms he painted into shapes, such as a tree into a column. Unlike many of the painters of his day, who focused on one or maybe two subject styles, Cezanne concentrated on still lifes, portraits, landscapes, and nude studies.

Boy in a Red Vest by Paul Cézanne
Though Cézanne rarely hired professional models, an Italian named Michelangelo di Rosa was the subject for this work—one in a series of four paintings and two watercolors he made of this boy in a red vest. Di Rosa is seen here in profile, casually hunched over with his hands on his lap. The short brushstrokes and triangular composition of the work provide a sense of volume and underscore the monumental stability of the figure.
