Episode 62: Monet

Chloe and Johanna discuss the life and work of Claude Monet who is considered to be the "Father of Impressionism." Monet had a long and interesting career spanning a very exciting time period as far as art history in concerned. From his more realist paintings to his later work that feels almost abstract, Monet's career spans one of the most exciting time periods of art history. 

Impression, Sunrise,  1872-1873, Monet
It was from a comment about this painting by an art critic that the Impressionists got their name.

Rouen Cathedral Series, 1890's, Monet
Monet painted over thirty paintings for this series. The series is a perfect example of how much light changes depending on time of day, weather, or season. 

Water Lilies, 1919, Monet
