A photo mosaic of Claude Monet’s “Impression, Sunrise” made from images ‘cut’ from paintings by the group known as the Impressionists. The original was painted in around 1874 and depicts the port of Le Havre at sunrise.
Claude Monet was a French painter, a founder of French Impressionist painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement. His most well known works feature water lilies painted from 1899 at his home in Giverny.
Impressionism emerged in France in the 1870s, initially amongst Monet, Renoir, Pissaro, Sisley, Cezanne, Morisot and Degas, and later also Manet and Cassatt. The group were termed the “Impressionists” by the media following an exhibition including Monet’s “Impression, Sunrise”.
