Claude Monet was born in Paris in 1840, boyhood in the face of the English Channel port city of La Abu spent. He did not follow the artist's usual way to go, but to start drawing comics, cartoons in the painting has a number of fame, and by the European Boudin's attention. Bodin focus on the oil outside the halogen skills to Monet left a deep impression. The 1874 exhibition, with "Impression Sunrise", Monet exhibited a total of 12 artifacts. Boudin told Monet that "everything on the spot draws always a vividness of reality, power, and brushwork that can not be achieved in the studio later." In his future painting career, Monet Boudin said to do, because in his heart is full of love for nature.

Soon, Monet was again the Dutch painter John Bartle de Qiong Kang's creation attracted. The artist paints bridges, village views, river banks and dilapidated thatched cottages with turbulence, excitement, liveliness and more active strokes than his French contemporaries. Monet is from the Boudin and Joan Kang received the basic artistic accomplishment.
In 1859, Monet came to Paris, where he saw the creation of Gustave Courbet, Jean Baptiste Camille Corot and Edouard Manet. He appreciates their painting strengths and applies their achievements at an alarming rate. But Monet is not their followers, but a rebel. Monet did not want to finish his studies in college, but he stayed in the studio at Glaire College in 1863 for some time. When he met Bazille, Alfred Sisley and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, he persuaded them to give up those studies. When the studio of Glaire College closed, he took his buddies to a small village in Fontainebleau, a small village called Shey, where he painted outdoor paintings.
When Monet left the studio at Glaire College, he did not enrich his rather poor artistic accomplishment, but instead took a purely intuitive observation of natural life with fiery conviction; he did not buy the doctrines of theory Account, but to develop their own set of painting methods.
Monet life on the modeling indifference, he is concerned about the right level of relationship. It is precisely because Monet is incompatible with the modeling, so he can easily show what he really saw things, but also because of this, he can not show the illusion of things realism.

Monet not only satisfied himself with being able to paint what he saw and to do in the way he saw; he wanted to create a unique effect that seemed impossible to achieve in painting. He likes all the dazzling things, he painted the river, the sky, houses and trees are filled with extraordinary sense of life. His heart is filled with irresistible excitement; from his concept he is a realist, but from his nature, he is a visionary.
In his later years, Monet, in his mansion, planted a lot of water lilies, he can not because of rheumatism in the easel before painting, on the walls of the living room, with a long pole oil painting pen for painting, Shuiguanghua Ying, mottled shine, though not as rigorous as the youth, serious, but its keen and unique color observation, but did not diminish that year. Today, he painted the water lily of the house team has opened up as Monet memorial, a collection of many works of Impressionist painter.
