Preconceptions about the composition of artworks were forever altered by French Impressionist pioneer Claude Monet (1840 – 1925). Triumphing over criticism, Monet revolutionized art by painting suggestions of forms that allowed the viewer’s eyes to translate them into familiar shapes. Using the outdoors as his studio, Monet’s quest to quickly capture the transient effects of light in “Poppies” results in its intense movement and vibrant color.
Claude Monet (1840 – 1926) pioneered Impressionism, profoundly influencing landscape painting. From Paris, Monet met the nucleus of his Impressionist group while attending the studio of Glenyre. Making a break from established painting techniques, Monet captured the fleeting effects of time of day, atmosphere and season upon color and light. Like a prism, his artwork broke color into individual elements, and completely lacked black and gray tones. Monet often painted the exact same view numerous times to depict changing light and weather conditions. Refining the portrayal of natural light’s transient effects, his work broke ground for 20th century modernism.
