Claude Monet was a leading figure in the late 19th century movement called Impressionism. His paintings captured scenes of middle class life and the transitioning qualities of sunlight. He applied bright, unmixed colors in quick, short strokes - almost defining Impressionism. His original canvases could be massive - starting another more modern trend.
