Spring Flowers - Claude Monet Canvas
Claude Monet was a French Impressionist painter who helped develop the technique of painting en plein air. Monet was born in Paris in 1840 and began his formal art training at the age of fourteen. In 1859, he became the only student of the great French artist, Gustave Courbet. Monet soon discovered that he had a natural talent for painting and in 1864, he showed his first painting at the Salon. In 1874, Monet began experimenting with a new technique called pointillism. Pointillism is a painting technique that uses small, distinct dots of color to create the illusion of a greater range of colors. In 1886, Monet became one of the founders of the Impressionist movement. In 1890, Monet began spending time at his home in Giverny, France, where he could paint from his garden and pond. In this setting, Monet created some of his most famous paintings, including "Water Lilies" and "The Japanese Footbridge."
