Monet is one of the most important painters in France, and most of the theories and practices of Impressionism have been popularized by him.
Monet is good at the experiment and expression techniques of light and shadow. His most important style is to change the painting method of shadow and outline. In Monet’s paintings, there is no very clear shadow, highlight or flat outline. The color description of light and shadow is the biggest feature of Monet’s painting.
