Oscar Claude Monet (1840-1926) — French painter, one of the founders and leaders of the direction of impressionism in art, which he adhered to throughout his career. Monet's painting style in this direction is considered classical: it is characterized by separate strokes of pure color, creating a richness of light when depicting the air. It is the master of painting – vibration of moving separate strokes – becomes the most important theme of Monet's work. Objects on his canvases lose their density, disintegrating into an infinite number of color reflections, creating a single light-air environment.
Monet painted mainly rural and urban landscapes, trying to capture on canvas the freshness of a momentary visual impression of what is happening.
Claude Monet was born in 1840 in Paris, but at the age of 5 his family moved to Le Havre.< br />
Being very restless by nature, during his school years, Claude misses the lessons and prefers to spend time in nature rather than reading textbooks, so he does not see much success in his studies. However, he is drawn to painting. Claude's ability to draw began to show from an early age. His forte was a caricature, which at first was just fun from having nothing to do in the lessons – Claude amused himself by painting the covers of notebooks with portraits of his teachers, sometimes done in a very irreverent, caricatured manner. By the age of 15, this fun of his turned into a real source of income. Having reached a high level of skill, Claude becomes known throughout Le Havre as a caricaturist and does not hesitate to take quite a lot of — twenty francs. Despite the high price, there were more than enough people who wanted to order a caricature portrait from him, which the young artist was very proud of.
Monet's undoubted talent was noticed by the local landscape painter Eugene Boudin, whose work, in turn, caused the strongest hostility in Claude. It is all the more interesting that it was Boudin who later became Monet's first teacher. One day, by inviting an aspiring artist to work outdoors, he managed to open the young man's eyes to nature and teach him to love it.
Claude's family owned a grocery store, and the parents' plans were for Claude to become a grocer and continue the family business . But the boy announced his decision to become an artist and go to study in Paris, which he did partly with his own savings, partly — with the help of my father and aunt.
In 1860, Monet was drafted into the army and ended up in Algeria, but out of the seven years prescribed, he spent two years in the service, as he fell ill with typhus. He was helped to get rid of military service by his aunt, who bought his nephew by paying 3,000 francs. Returning to Le Havre, Monet meets Jan Jongkind, whom he later calls his second teacher.
Studying at the university at the Faculty of Arts was not long, Monet was extremely disappointed with the approach to painting that prevailed there. Having interrupted his studies, he soon entered the painting studio organized by Charles Gleyre. It was there that he met the young artists Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley and Frederic Basil, who were practically his peers, had similar views on art and soon formed the backbone of the Impressionist group.
Between 1863 and 1865, Monet paints in the style of Courbet and the realist school, but he is constantly haunted by the idea of painting outdoors. The most famous of the works of this time, written by him after the work of the same name by Edouard Manet — “Breakfast on the Grass” (1866). Claude's version was 4 times larger and was painted in the studio from sketches made in the open air. Two of Monet's seascapes were exhibited and well received at the Salon of 1865.
The portrait of Camille Donsier, painted by him in 1866 “Camille, or a portrait of a lady in a green dress”, brought fame to the artist. and became his first wife a few years later.
From the late 1880s, Monet began to create entire series of paintings dedicated to the same subject or location, trying to capture and capture the various nuances of lighting and the complexity of color combinations. In 1883, the artist buys a house in Giverny, where his most famous cycles – "Hacks" and Water Lilies.
The cycle dedicated to the image of Rouen Cathedral consists of more than 20 works. French Gothic, with its whimsical architecture, loses its independent meaning for the artist and becomes a kind of screen on which an endless play of light and color is played out.
“Water Lilies” – a cycle of works, numbering about 250 paintings, including frescoes, was created by the artist for almost 30 years, and many canvases were painted already at the time when the artist's eyesight deteriorated due to cataracts, the diagnosis of which was made to him in 1912 year.
For many years, Monet did not dare to undergo cataract surgery due to the risk of total blindness and inability to draw, but in January and July 1923 he underwent surgery on both eyes and partially restored his vision and returned to drawing.
During this period, he spent most of his time in the garden, creating on his canvases the mysterious world of water and plants. The famous series of his last panels is represented by a variety of ponds with water lilies and other aquatic plants. near the sports complex “Yamit” in Holon.
