Bordeaux Wine – Claude Monet

19 Mar

Claude Monet (1840 – 1925), the founder of Impressionism, was one of the most influential landscape painters in the history of art. Born in Paris, Monet met fellow Impressionists Renoir, Sisley and Bazille while enrolled in the studio of Glenyre. Monet painted outdoors to convey the fleeting effects of atmosphere, time of day, and season upon color and light. He represented natural color like a prism, breaking it down into its individual components. He often painted a series of the exact same view under different light and weather conditions.

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 painting 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.

Landscape oil paintings are artworks designed to reflect the magnificence of nature. These oil paintings include scenes of mountains, bodies of water, plants, and other natural landscapes. Although landscape paintings focus on the natural world, they are by no means simple, pretty images featuring greenery and sky. Landscape artists take a two dimensional canvas and create a beautiful three dimensional world. Doing so is not an easy task but the variety of landscape paintings by famous artists shows just how many rose to the challenge, creating picturesque works that can translate the splendor of nature into any space.
