Monet | The Father of Impressionism

Monet’s greatest subject was capturing light. He was an acute observer of nature and transposing the reality of living onto canvas. In this latest episode of Expert Voices, art historian Katy Hessel
describes five stunning works by Monet which truly capture the feeling of being in nature. These five incredible paintings, offered in Sotheby’s upcoming Modern and Contemporary Art Evening Auction (2 March | London), were painted during a formative fifteen year period. These stunning still lifes, expansive landscapes and seascapes, and recurring motif of haystacks chart his evolution from a painter of representation to a painter of abstraction.
