Famed for being a figurehead in the Impressionist Movement, Claude Monet transformed French painting in the 19th century. With a consistent theme of depicting the landscape and lifestyle of Paris, it’s local surroundings and the coasts of Normandy, Monet came to success with his interpretation of the way nature changes, focusing a lot of works on water scenes with reflections.
Painting into his 80s, whilst suffering with cataracts on both eyes, Monet’s long career also paved the way into modernism painting styles which occurred in the 20th Century. Just years before his death, he donated a grand masterpiece - the Water Lilies - to the French Government, which was opened to the public at a display in the Orangerie, Paris, less than six months after he passed.
