Image-Woman with a Parasol, Madame Monet and Her Son (1875)
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 was a French painter, a founder of French Impressionist painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein air landscape painting.
Le bassin aux nymphéas (from the water lilies series) sold at Christie's 24 June 2008 auction in
London for £40,921,250 ($80,451,178), nearly doubling the record for the artist. This purchase represented one of the top 20 highest prices paid for a painting at the time.
November 14, 1840,- 5 December 1926
