Claude Monet Impression rising sun painting

Impression rising sun , Claude Monet, 1872, Marmottan Museum Paris

By titling "Impression" ("rising sun" or "sunrise" was added by a friend) this marine realised at Le Havre, masterpiece of the 1874 exhibition at photographer Nadar's studio, Monet gives it's name to the impressionist group. The journalist Louis Leroy calls the painting "impressionnist" to make fun of it..(They can't paint, they just give the impression). Later he will pretend to be the father of the movement !..-->More
