1 presented by Noémi Ferderber MONET ET LES JARDINS DE GIVERNY

2 Claude Monet  “Father of Impressionism”  preferred the freedom of the outdoors rather than the constraints of the classroom  famed among peers for drawing caricatures as a student  struggled with depression  painted outdoors using the plein-air technique  planted the Giverny gardens

3 Impressionism  Art movement initiated by Claude Monet  Differed greatly from the more popular realistic form of painting, which involved using dark colors to depict realistic scenes  Involved using short brushstrokes with vibrant, contrasting colors to capture the natural beauty of nature  Plein-air technique involved observing how atmospheric changes and light affect landscapes  Term coined by a derogative critic who was unimpressed by Monet’s painting of a foggy morning on a harbor displayed in an exhibition
