Impression, Sunrise 2


Claude Monet's "Impression, Sunrise" is a seminal work in the Impressionist movement.

Painted in 1872, the artwork depicts the port of Le Havre at sunrise, with the sun rising over the misty harbor and boats in the foreground. The painting is characterized by its loose brushwork and the use of vibrant, shimmering colors to capture the fleeting effects of light and atmosphere. Monet's emphasis on capturing the transient qualities of nature, as well as his departure from traditional realism, sparked controversy and gave rise to the term "Impressionism."

"Impression, Sunrise" is not only a masterful example of Monet's innovative approach to painting, but also a symbol of the profound influence of the Impressionist movement on the course of art history.
