Claude Monet (Paris 1840 – Giverny 1926) was one of the most important representatives of impressionism. He worked on the “en plein air” painting with his friends Pissarro, Bazille, Renoir and Sisley, with whom he painted the Fontainebleau forest and the Normandy coasts after 1864. In Argentenil, where he lived between 1872 and 1878, he created the impressionism.
From 1883 till 1908 he travelled a lot: in the South of France, in Liguria, in London, in Venice.
