Claude Monet

Claude Monet was born November 15, 1840 in Paris. Claude Monet loved to draw as a child and sometimes made money by making potraits of people

After his mother died in 1857 he moved to Paris to study art at the art academy Suisse. After a year he went to the army. There he became sick with a fever called typhoid and moved back to his home a few years later.

When Claude Monet moved back to Paris he continued to paint outdoor scenes. Later on, art critics in Paris accepted his work.

When he moved to London he became friends with several artists such as Pierre Renoir, Edouard Manet, and Camille Pissarro. They created the Society of Anonymous Painters, Sculptors, and Printers.

They decided to make the society because they wanted to experiment with art and not do the same classical art. In 1874 they had an art exhibit for their art.

Near the end of Claude Monet’s life he worked on two of his most famous pieces of art which were "Waterlilies" and "Woman with a Parasol."

The term "impressionist" was considered as an insult and meant that their art was just an impression and was incomplete.

Claude Monet went to art school, which his mom completely supported but his dad wanted him to take over the family grocery business. Around that time Claude Monet became friends with other artists.
