Showcasing 20 works by the founder of French Impressionist painting, "Claude Monet: Impressions of Light" also presents eight other canvases by Monet's predecessors and contemporaries, including Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Camille Pissarro, and Eugene Louis Boudin. It was from Monet's collaboration with these painters, along with his solitary explorations of the French countryside, that his own signature style eventually emerged.
this is the first time i've seen an original Monet painting
pictures can't do them justice...
i spent over an hour looking at these amazing paintings..
i was amazed by the depth
the brush strokes
the colors
of these paintings...
i wanted to go home and start painting..
