Claude Monet was the founder of the French Impressionist art style.

"When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before you, a tree, a house, a field, or whatever." — Claude Monet.

His artistic production is strongly influenced by nature. Monet, like many other Impressionists, took the environment around him as a reference for his paintings.

Claude Monet got fame for being the leader, and advocate of the Impressionist style.

He did not try to reproduce a scene in detail but to paint the impression that a relaxed, vision of the scene gave him.
