Claude Monet (Paris, 1840 – Giverny, 1926) Pour Claude Monet, le qualificatif d'impressionniste est toujours resté un sujet de fierté. Malgré tout ce que les evaluations ont pu écrire sur son oeuvre, Monet n'a cessé d'être véritablement impressionniste jusqu'à l. a. fin de sa très longue vie. Il l'a été par conviction profonde, et peut-être a-t-il sacrifié à son impressionnisme beaucoup d'autres possibilités que lui offrait son mammoth expertise. Monet n'a pas peint de compositions classiques avec des personnages, il n'est pas devenu portraitiste, bien que tout cela fût compris dans sa formation professionnelle. Il s'est choisi, en fait, un seul style, celui du paysage, et il y a atteint un degré de perfection auquel aucun de ses contemporains n'a pu parvenir. Pourtant, le garçonnet avait commencé par dessiner des caricatures. Puis Boudin lui conseilla d'abandonner l. a. sketch et d'opter pour le paysage : c'est que l. a. mer et le ciel, les animaux, les gens et les arbres sont beaux justement dans l'état où les a créés l. a. nature, c'est-à-dire entourés d'air et de lumière. C'est en effet de Boudin que Monet hérita los angeles conviction de l'importance du travail en plein air, conviction qu'il transmit plus tard à ses amis impressionnistes. Monet ne voulut pas entrer à l'École des Beaux-Arts. Il préféra fréquenter une école privée, l'Académie Suisse, fondée par un ancien modèle, quai des Orfèvres, près du pont Saint-Michel. On pouvait y dessiner et peindre un modèle vivant pour une somme modique. C'est là que Monet rencontra le futur impressionniste Camille Pissarro. C'est ensuite dans l'atelier de Gleyre, que Monet rencontra Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley et Frédéric Bazille. Il parlait aussi à ses amis d'un autre peintre qu'il avait également trouvé en Normandie. Il s'agissait de l'étonnant Hollandais Jongkind. «Il fut à partir de ce second mon vrai maître », disait Monet. «C'est à lui que je dois l'éducation définitive de mon oeil ». Ces paysagistes normands, Boudin et Jongkind, se rangent au nombre des maîtres directs des impressionnistes. En 1871-1872, les paysages de Monet ne se distinguaient pas encore par une grande richesse de coloris ; ils rappelaient plutôt les tonalités de los angeles peinture des artistes de Barbizon ou les marines de Boudin. Il composait une gamme de coloris sur los angeles base de plenty marron-jaune et bleu-gris. En 1877, lors de l. a. troisième exposition des impressionnistes, Monet présenta, pour l. a. première fois, une série de tableaux : sept vues de los angeles gare Saint-Lazare. Il les choisit parmi les douze toiles peintes dans los angeles gare. Ce motif, dans l'oeuvre de Monet, est dans l. a. ligne non seulement du Chemin de fer de Manet et de ses propres paysages, avec trains et gare, à Argenteuil, mais aussi de l. a. tendance qui commença à se manifester avec l'apparition des chemins de fer. Un beau matin, il réveilla Renoir avec un cri de victoire : «J'ai trouvé, l. a. gare Saint-Lazare ! Au second des départs, les fumées des locomotives y sont tellement épaisses qu'on n'y distingue à peu près rien. C'est un enchantement, une véritable féerie ». Il n'avait pas l'intention de peindre los angeles gare Saint-Lazare de mémoire ; il voulait saisir les jeux de lumière du soleil sur les nuages de vapeur qui s'échappaient des locomotives. En 1883, Monet avait acheté une maison dans le village de Giverny, à proximité de los angeles petite ville de Vernon. À Giverny, les séries devinrent une des principales méthodes de travail en plein air de Monet. Quand un journaliste, venu de Vétheuil pour interviewer Monet, lui demanda où se trouvait son atelier, le peintre répondit : «Mon atelier ! Mais je n'ai jamais european d'atelier, moi, et je ne comprends pas qu'on s'enferme dans une chambre. Pour dessiner, oui, pour peindre, non ». Montrant...
