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.
