Giverny and Impressionism explained to
Version Francaise :
Monet was fascinated by light, color and nature. He became a leader of a group of artists known as Impressionists.
Monet did much of his painting out-of-doors trying to catch the effects of daylight on objects. Many of his most beautiful paintings show places in the garden that he created for himself and his wife.
In the Musée d'Art Américain, Giverny are many works of art by American artists who became interested in painting their own gardens in Giverny and were also influenced by Monet's interest in light and nature.
Impressionism is a style of painting that focuses on the effects of light and atmosphere on colors and forms.
Impressionist artists often used broken brush strokes rather than smooth and unnoticeable ones and also used many colors to paint scenes of every day life.
Many of Impressionist artists would begin their paintings out-of-doors as Monet had done.
