Overview

For Claude Monet, the designation “impressionist” always remained a source of pride. In spite of all the things critics have written about his work, Monet continued to be a true impressionist to the end of his very long life. He chose a single genre for himself, landscape painting, and in that he achieved a degree of perfection none of his contemporaries managed to attain. With the help of color he succeeded in recreating on the canvas something almost impossible to capture: sunlight, enriching it with an infinite number of reflections. Alone among the impressionists, Claude Monet took an almost scientific study of the possibilities of color to its limits; it is unlikely that one could have gone any further in that direction.
