Monet and the Impressionists
Claude Monet was a pioneer in the Impressionist movement and in the philosophy of it. He developed his plain-air technique landscape painting which he is famous for. He disagreed with the way art was taught in schools and with the techniques of that time.
He would much rather sit outside capture the nature and try to reproduce it but the way he would see it. Claude Monet would recreate landscapes by making little strokes with his paintbrush and really feel the light, the shadows and the silhouettes.
