ART: PALAZZO DARIO BY CLAUDE MONET - 1908 (02)

While surfing today on internet I saw this beautiful painting from the French painter Claude Monet. Did not see this one before. What a beauty!
More about the artist.
Claude Monet, 1840–1926, French landscape painter. Monet was a founder of Impressionism. He adhered to its principles throughout his long career and is considered the most consistently representative painter of the school as well as one of the foremost painters of landscape in the history of art. As a youth in Le Havre, Monet was encouraged by the marine painter Boudin to paint in the open air, a practice he never forsook. After two years (1860–62) with the army in Algeria, he went to Paris, over parental objections, to study painting. In Paris, Monet formed lasting friendships with the artists who would become the major impressionists including Pissarro, Cézanne, Renoir, Sisley and Bazille. He and several of his friends painted for a time out-of-doors in the Barbizon district. Monet soon began to concern himself with his lifelong objective: portraying the variations of light and atmosphere brought on by changes of hour and season.
