<< Ah, well, what do I know, eh? The long and short of it is
that I like
Monet but cannot abide his rank as an Impressionist.
Claude Monet is the archetypal Impressionist painter.
Monet is known above all for his role as a founder of Impressionism; during
the 1870s his pictures and those of his fellow independents were in the
forefront of the avant-garde art, with emphasis on the fugitive, natural,
effects of light. He painted in series(waterlilies, haystacks), but always
stayed true the Impressionist ideal.
he painted the original Impressionist painting "Impression; Sunrise" now at
the Getty, LA.
