Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists-Monet


Claude Monet (French pronunciation: ​[klod mɔnɛ/mɔne]) (14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting.[1][2] The term Impressionism is derived from the title of his painting Impression, Sunrise (Impression, soleil levant).

Monet (Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists)

I love doing art because it's over children using there imagination for there own masterpiece. This week we studied Claude Monet. 
This painting is the:
The Houses of Parliament,Sunset 1903

It's interesting to me how they are so different, but this is what makes an artist an artist.
