Claude Monet, born Nov. 14, 1840 in Paris, and died December 5, 1926. According to Web Museum Monet was a:
Quote:
French painter, initiator, leader, and unswerving advocate of the Impressionist style. He is regarded as the archetypal Impressionist in that his devotion to the ideals of the movement was unwavering throughout his long career, and it is fitting that one of his pictures--Impression: Sunrise (Musée Marmottan, Paris; 1872)--gave the group his name.


Biographies of Monet need to be read with care to your children - he had an affair before the death of his wife, a woman he later married.

Monet was troubled with failing sight near the end of his life, but painted up until his death.

Dear Amy,

Monet is also one of my favorite painters and my girls love his work also. Thanks for the great start I have wanted to cover his work in our art lessons for ages, you have just given me the inspiration and tools to start.

Thank you so much for the idea.
God Bless

A couple of free Monet paintings to color or paint. One suggestions I saw is to use chalks in pastel colors and blend. Watercolor pencils would be fun, I think I'll try that. Wonder if I can get watercolor paper through the printer?

Little Monets, which mentions the DVD of Linnea in Monet's Garden

Looks Like Higher Up and Further In has a Monet study on her sidebar! Go to the website, and scroll down, looking on her right sidebar for a flikr account slideshow of Monet paintings. 40 beautiful choices, including many of those above. You can click on her pictures to be taken to her account to print them.

ETA: whoops, it's now Rembrandt. She must have just changed it for November.
