ABOUT THE TALK
Claude Monet is one of the most famous and best loved of Western artists. Most know him as the painter of poplar-trees, haystacks and water lilies and yet the familiarity and charm of his paintings often belie their true revolutionary nature. His iconic painting, ‘Impression, Sunrise’ (1872), was the work that gave the movement its name and has become the poster image of Impressionism. Monet transformed the art world with his astonishing ability to capture the fleeting effect of light and air on canvas and with his radical broken and visible brushwork.
