About the Artist
Claude Monet (1840–1926) was an innovative leader of the impressionists, a group of painters who strove to capture the endless variations of light and atmosphere found in nature through plein-air landscape painting. Over the course of Monet's career, illustrated here through works spanning more than 40 years, his technique and vision developed. His art, originally grounded in the realism of direct observation, eventually reflected his interest in rendering an abstract sensation of nature.
This charming set of nine magnets features Monet's impressionist paintings, including the popular Japanese Footbridge (1899).
