Happy Birthday Monet!

"Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love." -Claude Monet

Claude Monet was born November 14, 1840 in Paris, France, and developed an early love of drawing, selling caricatures of the town's residents as a young man.  It was his love of the outdoors, and the subsequent series of paintings of his natural surroundings, that have become some of his most celebrated pieces; defining him as a leading figure in the Impressionist movement.  Monet was a genuine innovator, leaving a legacy of artwork that still inspires today.

It is with great respect that we celebrate Claude Monet's birthday today.  Click here to view our complete assortment of products featuring the work of this pioneer of Impressionism.
