Monet is one of the most well known painters throughout history. He was the primary inspiration for the new art movement of his time known as impressionism. Personally, I think Monet captures the light of nature in a unique and spontaneous style. I think that this painting by Monet in particular is very attractive to the eye and very intriguing to look at. I am impressed by his talents by the way he expresses nature without having to conform to the formal ideas that were previously used before him.
