A key founder of the Impressionist movement, Claude Monet (1840 – 1926) is considered one of the most influential landscape painters of all time. He and his fellow Impressionist artists sought to capture feelings or experiences rather than realism and strove to capture light as it changed the subject. Early art critics labeled them impressionists, based on one of Monet's works "Impression, Sunrise" as their work looked less finished. The artists took to the term and adopted as their own. Monet's long art career was marked by hardship, though he found financial and critical success in the late 1800s and art historians believe he opened the door for abstract art. Monet's home and lush gardens in Giverny, France are now the Claude Monet Foundation, a notable tourist destination.
