MONET: French Impressionist Artist

On 14 November 1840 a second son was born to Adolphe and Louise-Justine Monet of 45 Rue Laffitte, in the 9th arrondissement (district) of Paris. Both parents were second-generation Parisians; they had the baby christened Oscar-Claude at the church of Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, and called him Oscar for short. Oscar's early years were permeated (filled) with music, on account of his mother's talent as a singer. No one has managed to ascertain (make sure of) what his father did, though he may have been in business.

(From the book: Monet the ultimate impressionist by Thames & Hudson)

IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE

Because Magret's parents were so poor, Magret didn't learn how to read and write when she was young. This troubled her. She would stay up at night, thinking: Will I ever be able to write my name? Will I ever be able to read?

VAN GOGH TO PICASSO - GUGGENHEIM BILBAO

Drawn from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation's Thannhauser Collection, Van Gogh to Picasso: The Thannhauser Legacy features works by impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and early modern masters, including  Paul Cézanne, Edgar, Édouard Manet, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh.

IMPRESSIONISM

It's an art movement, impressionism originated in 19th-century France as a reaction against the rigid rules of "academic painting" of that time.

Impressionist art is known for its distinctive brush strokes, lighting, colours, and everyday subjects.

POST-IMPRESSIONISM

It's an art movement that developed in the 1890s. It is characterized by a subjective approach to paintings, as artists opted to evoke emotion rather than realism in their work.

Post-Impressionists believed that a work should place emphasis on symbolism, communicating messages from the artist's own subconscious. They perceived it as a way to convey feelings.

Like the Impressionists, the Post-Impressionist shared their work with the public through independent exhibitions across Paris.
