Is Claude Monet (1840–1926) the last great master of the 19th century or the first great painter of the 20th century? His innovative art, like his contemporary Rodin, embodies the passage from tradition to modernity. Painter of color and the outdoors, Monet is best known for being the leader of the Impressionist school. An artist on the fringes of academic education, he saw his name triumph in the history of modern art at the turn of the 20th century and is considered by American Abstract Expressionists to be one of the forerunners of abstraction.
