Claude Monet, 1840 – 1926, was a founder of French Impressionist painting. Plein-air landscape painting (painting outdoors) was a specialty of his which was followed by many other Impressionist painters. The term "Impressionism" itself came from one of his paintings, "Impression, Sunrise", which he exhibited in 1874 in the first of the independent exhibitions. While his first wife was alive he also did paintings of her. But after her early death he rarely did any portraiture again.
Monet painted the same scene many times in all different times and lights of the day and seasons of the year. One of these series was his "Haystacks." He often worked on multiple paintings outdoors at the same time with this end goal. In 1883, Monet moved to Giverny. His landscaping project there, which included lily ponds, would ultimately occupy him for the rest of his painting life. His "Water Lilies" would become his best known works. Some of these paintings would also resemble large abstract paintings which put him decades ahead of his time.
