Claude Monet (1840 - 1926): Aged 22 and disappointed with traditional art education, Monet moved to Paris. He took lessons from Charles Gleyre, where he met Renoir, Bazille and Sisley. The group were strongly opposed to Classicism. They wanted to capture the fleeting light, with rapid brushstrokes and in elementary colors without worrying about the exactness of the representation of shapes. They worked en plein air outdoors which had become possible because paint was now available in tubes. Daily life was depicted without symbolism or an underlying message. He was a founder of the Impressionism art movement.
