Oscar Claude Monet

Oscar Claude Monet was born on November 14, 1840 in Paris, France. Monet spent most of his
childhood in Le Havre, France. In Le Havre, Monet studied drawing and painted seascapes
with a French painter Eugene Louis Boudin in his teens. By 1859 Monet committed himself a
career to be an artist. Monet spent a lot of time in Paris around 1859. By 1860 Monet met
a pre-impressionist painter, Edouard Manet. Monet also met other French painters destined
to form the impressionist school. Monet met Camille Pissaro, Pierre Auguste Renoir, and
Alfred Sisley.


Monet painted simple landscapes and sketch like scenes of bright color. Monet had some
success in official exhibits. In 1874, Monet and his colleagues decided to organize their
own exhibition in public. Monet and his colleagues called them selves, independents, but
the press later named them impressionists because their work seemed sketchy and unfinished
(like a first impression). One of Monet's paintings had the title Impression: Sunrise in
1872, in Musee Marmottan, Paris. During the rest of the 1870's and early 1880's, Monet
used special techniques to paint scenes of different impressions on colors. Monet went to
the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts to study the effects of light and color.
