Monet “an eye… but good God, what an eye!”
Claude Monet transformed light and colour into art. In 1874 his Impression, Sunrise caused uproar among the critics and a revolution in painting. His inventiveness was inexhaustible: with the Haystacks, Poplars and Cathedrals and, finally, the enchanting Water-lilies of Giverny, Monet captured light in all its fleeting qualities. As last almost blind « I fear the dark more than death »- he feverishly produced near-abstract landscapes of water and reflection, a vision of nature that paved the way for the art of our own day.
