Claude Monet was an impressionist french painter who enjoyed painting landscape and cityscapes. He will always capture light and colour movement in different subject or seasons.
Monet created a beautiful water garden in Giverny and used it as a subject over and over again. He liked the way how the water moved and reflect the world.
The famous painting of the Japanese bridge showed an arched bridge crossing a pond. It was surrounded with trees and shrubs which reflects the light off of the surface in the pond when the season changes.
