Claude Monet Paintings of 19th Century

By Jennifer Hudson Taylor

As the founder of the French Impressionist movement, Claude Monet captured movement against the back drop of nature scenes. Many of his paintings show people living active lives, while others depicted beautiful landscapes. He lived between 1840 - 1926 and spent several years in Paris where he painting most of his art. 

Monet's art is old enough to be in the public domain. Many of the women in his paintings are of his wife, Camille. I have included a few of my favorite images below.
