Biographical details with Claude Monet posters

Born in Paris on November 14, 1840, Monet spent his childhood in the city of Havre. He developed his passion for art over time, starting with caricatures and then painting, which he studied in Paris in 1859 at the Swiss Academy. As Monet developed his own style, he faced some financial difficulties because despite the success of "The Woman in a Green Dress", no art gallery would expose his work. Once the Franco-Prussian War broke out, Monet went to London where he met the art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel who would eventually buy his works and help in making Monet’s impressionist paintings known, many of which you can see in our grand display of Claude Monet posters. A small faction of the future impressionist group met up in 1872 in Argenteuil where the movement’s very first work, Impression, Rising Sun, was produced and which later gave its name to the movement. This painting was exhibited to the public during the first impressionist exhibition in 1874 and would indeed mark the height of the impressionist movement, defining Monet as one of its creators. Many of his finest works are on display here in the form of Claude Monet posters.

Mentors and influences

It was in Le Havre that Monet met Eugene Boudin, one of the first landscape artists to paint outside giving him the title "The King of the Skies". Boudin noticed the young Monet’s talent and invited him to paint with him in Normandy. This encouragement proved vital to Monet’s development as a landscape artist, where he learnt from Boudin’s desire to capture light in his paintings. You can witness this in Claude Monet posters such as Fontainebleau - Claude Monet. The artist himself also had a great fascination with Japanese art and prints. Monet’s interest in Japanese style was echoed by French society at large, which experienced a mini-obsession with the oriental in the 19th century. Monet’s most famous subject, water lilies, is also attributed to his interest in Japanese art. You can see this stunning painting in Waterlilies - Claude Monet in the Claude Monet posters section.
