On that day, in 1840 was born one of the greatest painter of all time. Claude Monet. If one is thinking about Impressionism, French Impressionism, most likely, Monet will be the first name. His perpetual colors & lights quest is an infinite source of inspiration. His colors are substance. His light is sound.
“Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love.”
