Claude Monet

Claude Monet

(1840 - 1926)
Born: Paris, France
Style: Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Haystacks at Chailly at Sunrise (1865)
  • The River, Au Bord de l'Eau, Bennecourt (1868)
  • Water Lilies, Giverny (1907)
Claude Monet, a leader of Impressionism, has left indelible marks in the world of art. Impressionism, a term coined from the title of one of Monet's paintings in 1874, was scorned by critics when the canvases where first shown. It is ironic then that this artist has come to be one of the best known and loved artists of the twentieth century. After prospering in the 1880s, Monet bought his home at Giverny, and built the famous water garden, which came to be a dominant theme in his paintings throughout his entire career. Monet depicted cathedrals and haystacks in different stages of light in the day, creating a body of work that established his place as a painter of light. In 1899-1900 Monet's focus turned almost entirely to his beloved water lilies. He created enormous cycles of paintings of this subject, exploring light, motion, and color, and wrapped in a flickering field of brush strokes. Monet's truly modern creations were so innovative he became a stepping-stone for the art movement to come. His use of luminosity and color were so revolutionary his paintings sparkled and shimmered with light and movement. It can be said that Monet went beyond the tenets of Impressionism, and was instead the pioneer of the Abstract Expressionism.

I have sealer videos on the product, I truly love it just wish it came in others colors.

Working with Pebeo products is so much fun and I love the different affects that can be achieved by using Prisme, Vitrail and glitter together. Cons: Some colors in the Pebeo Prisme line became thick and gooey after 4 to 6 months of storage. I attempted to thin the paint with paint thinner but it was still too thick. I wrote the Pebeo Customer Service Department and have yet to hear from them (it's been approximately one week now). Regardless, when I want to create something unique I will continue to use them.

I have been using Pelikan opaque watercolors for 40 years. I love them. They last a long time. The colors are great. Also, with more pigment, you can achieve rich vibrant colors that don't fade. I don't put my finished pieces in the sun. And they don`t dry up like tube watercolors. I have given them as presents also.
