Claude Monet was a French painter and is considered to be the founder of “Impressionist paintings”. This type of painting has short and light brush strokes used free handedly depicting pictorial effects. The change of light intensity is common characteristic of such paintings. This particular technique didn’t turn out to be popular at start and was criticized but at last got approval as it focused on nature and freshness of environment.
One of the most famous Monet’s paintings is a “Water Lilies” series which consist of approximately 250 oil paintings. The paintings depict Monet’s flower garden at Giverny and were the main focus of Monet’s artistic production during the last thirty years of his life.
