Why we love Oscar-Claude Monet
Oscar-Claude Monet or just, Monet, was born in 1840. He was a French painter and the founder of the French Impressionist style of painting. He’s believed to have largely influenced the direction of modern art as we know it today.
Monet has a goal to document the countryside in France. It’s this goal that meant he painted the same scene multiple times in order to capture the changes in light and season.
Monet’s Famous Paintings
Art lover or not, it’s fair to say most people have heard of Monet — he is one of the most famous artists in the world. It’s no surprise that he has a huge list of famous paintings. His art has influenced the generation of artists in the late 19th and early 20th Century.
Nowadays, his original paintings sell for millions, if not tens of millions of dollars. In fact, in recent years, his art sales have been ranked on the list of the 20 highest prices paid for a painting at the time.
While Monet lived though he was often criticised. His work was revolutionary and deviated far from the norm of the time. His paintings are nearly all about nature and an exact moment in time.
He is well-known for the use of strong colours, which he never mixed, short brush strokes, and experimentation with light and shadow.
This was the painting that led the way for Impressionism. It was painted by Monet in 1872 and it is of the harbour of Le Havre, with rowboats at the front, steamboats and cranes featuring in the background, as well as the famous focal point of the sun.
Monet’s series of water lilies are amongst his most famous paintings. Many of the paintings have been sold for tens of millions of dollars in recent history. Nymphéas is one of the most recognized and loved of the water lily series.
Painted in 1875, this is a beautiful painting of Monet’s wife and their son. Incredibly, Monet took only a few hours to paint this widely known and loved masterpiece.
Depicting beautiful trees next to the River Epte, this series of paintings was created in 1891. The location was only a few miles upstream from Monet’s home and he used a small boat as his studio while he was painting the trees.
Rouen Cathedral, Facade, Sunset
Another famous painting from Monet is of the Rouen Cathedral at sunset. Part of a series of paintings of the same building during different days, times and seasons. It is this series that profoundly highlights Monet’s experimentation with light, which is the real subject of this beautiful painting.
The Houses of Parliament, Sunset
This time in the United Kingdom, this painting is part of a series of the British Houses of Parliaments at Westminster. Painted during Monet’s visits in 1899, 1900 and 1901, he painted them from a window or terrace at St Thomas’ Hospital and later, from memory.
San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk
Monet painted an incredible series of paintings of the Venetian monastery-island, San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk. Painted between 1908 and 1912, remarkably painted with only one actual visit to Venice.
Haystack at the End of Summer
Between 1890 and 1891, Monet painted 25 paintings which formed the series called Haystack. A simple subject of hay in a field after the harvest, but like other series, Monet’s main focal point is the light and shadow.
