Impression Sunrise by Claude Monet

Due to his hazy painting approach in his depiction of the scene, Monet claimed that he dubbed the work Impression, Sunrise: "They asked me for a title for the catalogue, it couldn't really be taken for a view of Le Havre, and I said: 'Put Impression.'"

In addition to this interpretation for the work's title, art historian Paul Smith believes that Monet named the painting Impression to shield it from charges of being incomplete or missing descriptive detail, although he still faced similar attacks regardless of the title.

The two little rowboats in the backdrop and the red Sun are the primary components of Impression, Morning, which represents the harbour of Le Havre at sunrise. More fishing boats are seen in the central ground, while clipper ships with lofty masts are depicted in the backdrop on the painting's left side. The majority of critics did not consider Impression, Sunrise to be one of the exhibition's most important works; it was mentioned only five times in all of the reviews. The exhibition reviews, as well as the critiques of Monet's paintings, provide insight into the evolution of the style as well as Monet's work and growth as an artist.
