Claude Monet - part 26 1900 - 1908




Claude Monet (1840 – 1926) was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting. 

For full biographical notes on Monet see part 1. For earlier works by Monet see parts 1 - 25 also.

This is part 26 of a 27-part series on the works of Claude Monet:

1900 - 1905 The Houses of Parliament

Monet undertook a series of paintings of the Palace of Westminster, home of the British Parliament, during his stays in London between the years 1900-1905. The paintings have all the same size and viewpoint, Monet's window at St Thomas’ Hospital overlooking the river Thames. They are however painted at different times of the day and at different weather circumstances.


By now he had abandoned his earlier working practice of completing a painting on the spot in front of the motif. He carried on refining the images back in France, and sent to London for photographs to help in this. This caused some adverse reaction, but Monet's reply was that his means of creating a work was his own business, and it was up to the viewer to judge the final result.
