Claude Monet

The most prominent artist of the Impressionist art movement was undoubtedly Claude Monet, most famous for his depictions of water lilies.By using unmixed paint and scattered brushstrokes, Monet sought to capture nature as he saw and experienced it. He often used the wet-on-wet method which involved painting one layer of paint over the other, without waiting for the first layer to dry. This method allowed him to complete paintings relatively quickly compared to the wet-on-dry method which was popular at the time.The technique resulted in softer edges and blurred lines that merely implied three-dimensional planes without realistically depicting them.  His innovative approach to art included painting the same scene over and over again, at different times of the day and various weather conditions to show how light and atmosphere influence our perception.
