Oscar-Claude Monet (1840 – 1926) was a renowned French painter who used to capture his daily life’s best moments on canvas. He is one of the most celebrated figures in the field of art, and an inspiration to many budding artists. Unlike many other contemporaries of his times, Claude observed his immediate environment, and painted it on canvas. His work is also known for the effective use of light. One of Claude’s greatest contributions was his painting style, which was later termed ‘Impressionism’. Artists who had a similar style of painting were since then called ‘Impressionists’.
