Claude Monet captured the beauty of nature on his canvases. Monet's masterpieces are loved not only in France but also by many people around the world, including Japan and the United States. When we displayed revival paintings in special corners of Impressionist and Monet exhibitions, we received more orders for works by Monet than by any other painter. Here, we will feature a close-up of the artist Monet in order to capture the essence of his works.

Claude Monet, the path of a painter

Sunset in Le Havre

Boudin's work depicting the sky

Claude Monet was a painter who dedicated his life to exploring and expressing light, capturing the beauty and colors of sunlight shining in nature in his works.
Monet was born in Paris in 1840 and, at the age of five, moved with his family to Le Havre, a port city in northwestern France, where he spent his childhood. It was here that his talent was discovered by his senior painter Eugene Boudin, who taught him the wonders of working outdoors. This would determine the fate of the painter Monet.

After awakening, Monet moved to Paris at the age of 19 and began his career as a painter in earnest. In 1862, he entered Charles Gleyre's atelier, where he met the later Impressionist painters such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Jean Frederic Bazille, and Alfred Sisley. The art world was conservative, and the salons, which could be considered the only place to present works, were dissatisfied with the current state of art, such as realistic historical paintings and mythological paintings carefully completed in the atelier. Monet formed a group with like-minded painters and continued to create works that were bold yet full of light.

On the other hand, Edouard Manet, later called the father of Impressionism, caused a scandal with his Luncheon on the Grass, which he presented at the Salon in 1863. Monet was so impressed by this shocking work that he painted Luncheon on the Grass using the same subject in 1866. This work is known as a representative work of the artist Monet's early years, and also depicts Courbet, with whom he had an exchange at the time.

Monet lived in Giverny for the second half of his life, but before that he traveled a lot and painted the landscapes of his travels. His first trip was to London in 1870, where he stayed for six months. It was here that Monet encountered the landscape of London, blurred by fog and dust. Monet was also greatly influenced by the works of British landscape painter Joseph William Turner and others in London.

After returning to France in 1872 via the Netherlands, he moved to Argenteuil, a town on the Seine River, 15 minutes by train from Paris, where he lived until 1878. Argenteuil is a popular tourist destination for leisure activities such as swimming in the Seine, where Monet created over 170 works.

In 1873, when Monet was 32 years old. His monumental work ``Impression, Sunrise'' (exhibited for the first time in 21 years at the Monet exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum), which heralded the birth of Impressionism, was painted in the port of Le Havre, his hometown during his childhood. Ta. The sun rises over the port of Le Havre in the early morning, and the sky and sea are colored by that light in the morning mist. A small boat floats in the foreground, a large ship appears in the background, and the ships and people are vaguely depicted. However, this work did not have a title when it was first painted, and Monet only responded when asked that he wanted it to be called "Impression." What Monet wanted to depict was the very impression that was difficult to retain, such as the air of a harbor or the sea reflected in the sun's rays as it began to rise in the morning mist.

This work was exhibited at the first exhibition held in 1874 by a joint venture of painters, sculptors, printmakers, etc. Monet and other painters with a new style of expression were given the name ``Impressionism'' after critic Louis Leroy published a review of this exhibition in Le Charivari magazine, calling it an ``Impressionist exhibition.'' This exhibition later became known as the First Impressionist Exhibition. Over the years, the works of Impressionist painters gradually gained recognition from the public.

Monet also gained fame as a painter, working on series such as ``The Stack of Straw'' and ``Rouen Cathedral.''
