Oscar-Claude Monet spent most of his life painting his own spontaneous impressions of nature and the world that was closest to him.

His works provoked the description Impressionist, the name given to the style of art that he created together with Camille Pissarro and Alfred Sisley.

Today Monet remains among the most beloved of classic painters: not only was he the most important of the Impressionists, he is undoubtedly one of the greatest of his profession.

His genius was recognised even in his own lifetime; Paul Cezanne said of him: 'Monet is an eye, the most wonderful eye since there have been artists.
