Claude Monet
100th anniversary of death: 5 December 2026

The painter Claude Monet is one of the most famous representatives of French Impressionism. His painting "Impression, soleil levant" gave this style its name. Monet had loved nature since early youth and enjoyed spending time outdoors. It is Eugène Boudin who encourages Monet to paint outdoors and study the effect of light on colours and shapes. His special love of flowers and plants is reflected in many of his paintings. He was inspired to paint his famous water lily paintings by a lily pond, which was specially created for this purpose in his garden.

In the 1870s, Monet bought a boat, which he converted into a studio. Many river landscapes have been preserved from this time. Travelling to England and Italy give him new creative impulses. Subjects from Hyde Park or the Thames, as well as numerous motifs from Venice, which were not created entirely in the open air, but were completed in the studio, are known. Afflicted by a serious eye disease, Monet spends his last years in his house in Giverny, until his death in December 1926.

Born November 14, 1840 in Paris; December 5, 1926 in Giverny, France
