French painter, born in Paris, one of the representatives and founders of Impressionism. Monet is an expert on experimenting and expressing techniques of light and shadow. The most important style is to change the way of drawing shadows and contour lines. There are no clear shadows in his paintings, nor prominent or flat contour lines. His use of color is also very delicate. He has long explored the perfect expression of color and light, often likes to depict the same subjects under different times and lights.
