Claude Monet

Monet has been described as “the driving force behind Impressionism”.

Crucial to the art of the Impressionist painters was the understanding of the effects of light on the local colour of objects, and the effects of the juxtaposition of colours with each other. …

… a series of oil paintings … between 1899 and 1904, they depict a misty, impressionistic Charing Cross Bridge in London.

Another I like is this of Monet’s son and wife … who died age-32.
