As one of the founding fathers of the French Impressionism, Oscar-Claude Monet (1840–1926) broke free from the convention of copying from the old masters. Monet's impressionistic artworks depicted his direct observation of nature and emphasis on the shifting of lights according to different times and seasons.

"Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love" - Oscar-Claude Monet (1840–1926)
